How to synchronize only root and 1st subfolder only

I want to synchronize all .EXE files into my local directory but only from some folders of my FTP directory. I want to exclude all second-level or more subdirectories.
My FTP has FOLDER/SUBFOLDER1/SUBFOLDER2/SUBFOLDER3/subfolder4, and I just want to get .EXE files from FOLDER/SUBFOLDER1/subfolder2

Here is my command line:

synchronize local -filemask="*/;*.exe;" D:\fsdash\bck /folder/subfolder1/subfolder2

My results are:

using above command line I get all .EXE files from any folder and subfolder from my FTP to my local.

using: winscp513

THX

Something like this should work:
-filemask="*/;*.exe|/path_from_root/folder/*/*/*/"
You need to use an absolute path in the exclude mask.

Do you mean add path_from_root from my local or from my Remote FTP?
I have current code:

synchronize local -filemask="*/;*.exe|/path_from_root/folder/*/*/*/" D:\fsdash\diags\SYNC\temp /diags/Temp/Magellan

Source path, so in your case the remote directory. Though, it does not hurt to add the corresponding local path too.
