Winscp users.

I think I am missunderstanding what MV does.
I want to move the files from remote folder to my local drive.
I am using:

MV *.xls E:\MyTestFiles\

I am finding it is not doing that and is making a file on the remote folder called e:mytestfiles.

Do I need to do a get and rm instead?

That would do too. More robust solution is to use get -delete:
