Hi,

Can anyone help me. I have to retrieve files from a source directory on a source server and put them on a different server in a different directory. I only want to transfer new or amended files and only files that follow a particular naming convention.

Here is my script:

Code:
#
# Connect to source server
#
open sftp://<sourceUsername>:<sourcePassword>@source.myDomain.com<sourceDirectory>
# Download all files that haven't been downloaded previously
#
lcd C:\SFTP_temp\
synchronize -filemask="ABC*.csv" local
#
# Close connection to source server
#
close
#
# Connect to destination server
#
open ftp://<destinationUser>:<destinationPwd>@destination.myDomain.com:21<destinationDir>
#
# Upload all files that haven't been uploaded previously
#
lcd d:\SFTP_temp\
synchronize -filemask="ABC*.csv" remote
#
# Close connection
#
close
#
# Exit WinSCP
#
exit


It does appear to transfer all files with the naming convention ABC*.csv, BUT it also appears to transfer any other file as well.

Am I doing something wrong? Any pointers?

Thank you!

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

Name a file that was transferred but should not have been.

To generate log file, use /log=path_to_log_file command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
