Re: SFTP command line to copy Folder and contents to local C:\

Command get can download even folder, not only file. Just specify a path to a folder as its argument. Do not forget to terminate path with slash.

SFTP command line to copy Folder and contents to local C:\

Hi everyone,
I am trying to get WINSCP to connect to an SFTP site and download a folder structure and contents.

Folder 1
> File1
> File2
> File1
> File2

I am currently using the following script which works for copying a single file but need it changed to copy full folder structure including files within each folder.

# Automatically abort script on errors
option batch abort
# Disable overwrite confirmations that conflict with the previous
option confirm off
# Connect using a password
open sftp://UserName:Password@IP:Port/
# Change remote directory
cd /QlikView/COMPLIANCE/
# Force binary mode transfer
option transfer binary
# Download file to the local directory d:\
get Test.txt c:\Temp\
# Disconnect
# Exit WinSCP

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
