Re: 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=path_to_log_file 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.

get -delete not working

I currently have a winscp script to download any zip files from a remote location that was added within the last 30 minutes. I need to have these files deleted after a successful download but
for some reason get - delete is not working. Anybody have any suggestions?

Here is the cmd being used:

cd /remotedirectory
lcd C:\localdirectory

get -delete -filemask="*>30N" /remotedirectory*.zip


NOTE: I have the script working without -delete. when adding -delete, zip files still transfer but do not delete afterwards from the remote directory.
