GetFiles and remove set to true tries to delete folder

Hi,
I have an issue.
I have GetFiles method's remove option set to true.
It removes all files but then it tries to remove the remote folder that those files where in.
I do not have permission to do that and that generates an error.

Anything I can do about that?

Re: GetFiles and remove set to true tries to delete folder

I suppose you do:
session.GetFiles("/remotepath/folder", "C:\\localpath\\", true).
This moves folder from /remotepath to C:\localpath\.

You probably want to do:
session.GetFiles("/remotepath/folder/*", "C:\\localpath\\folder\\", true) (note the slash).
This moves contents of /remotepath/folder/ to C:\localpath\folder\

I have:
session.GetFiles("/UP/", "\\hostname\SftpDownload\", True, transferOptions)

So there is a slash at the remote path end.

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

To generate log file, set Session.SessionLogPath. 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 may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.

Sorry, I was wrong, you need to also add a file mask (*) to the source path, to select only contents. I've updated by answer above.

Removing file after movement deletes folder

As suggested below, when used * as mentioned, getting
badly formatted packet or protocol incompatibility
Can you please suggest alternative on this.
