Script to backup server files to pc?

Hi All

Please be gentle with me as I really don't know much about scripting so I am learning here. I have been searching the last 24hrs for a script to backup my files using winscp from a folder on my server to local folder on my HD.

I have found a few but lot of them are trying to zip the files and I really don't want that, I just want a simple script that will take my files (that are already zipped by the server) from A > B . Then I want to get windows task scheduler to run the script if possible for weekly backup.

Does anyone know of such a script, I had the most success so far with a script made into a .bat file but it kept trying to zip up the files it downloading into one big file which isn't what I am looking for.

Can someone help me out please?

Thank you so much.
