Re: Filename changes during download

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

To generate the session log file, use /log=C:\path\to\winscp.log 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.

Filename changes during download

I have a cmd file, which I want to download any file from the site with an .OUT extension:
Text file:
option batch continue
option confirm off
lcd C:\sftp_downloads\LS\
get *.out ./

Cmd file:
"c:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\" /script=C:\LS_scripts\lsftpscript.txt

The file I want to download has a name like RS00001.OUT, but it's downloading as .%F

Any idea why that happens? I'd like to keep the name intact.
