Re: Filemasks with Spaces

Your (first and second) syntax seems correct (works for me).

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

Filemasks with Spaces


I am having problems with spaces in my file mask, I have tried these three different ways around it, and none of them get to what I want, which is to exclude the /To Client/ Directory, and download the rest of the files.

$transferResult = $session.GetFiles($directory.fullname, $full_filepath_to, $False, $transferOptions)

$transferOptions.FileMask = "*.*>200D | */To Client/, */landing_zone/, *.pdf"
$transferOptions.FileMask = ">200D | */To Client/, */landing_zone/, *.pdf"
Both give:
. 2017-02-16 16:00:00.405 file.txt;-;20763893;2017-02-16T20:39:40.000Z;3;"" [0];"" [0];rwxrwxrwx;1

. 2017-02-16 16:00:00.405 File "/file.txt" excluded from transfer

$transferOptions.Filemask = >200D | */To Client/, */landing_zone/, *.pdf
This allows all files in, and does not mask the /To Client/ directory

Any help on this would be grateful.
