Re: Script get -delete not working

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.

Script get -delete not working

I'm trying to automate (via batch file) downloading and deleting all files from a remote directory. The files are just in the / <root> and are downloading to a local drive.

WinSCP gives me this, and I add in the -delete switch:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\" ^
  /log="C:\writable\path\to\log\WinSCP.log" /ini=nul ^
  /command ^
    "cd /" ^
    "lcd C:\working\Work" ^
    "get -delete *" ^
if %WINSCP_RESULT% equ 0 (
  echo Success
) else (
  echo Error

Even without the delete switch, the get command does nothing. With it, it also does nothing, and does not download nor delete them. Can anyone help?
