I had trouble downloading files using winscp vers, and The error i get are :
Can't get attributes of file '......csv'-->WInSCP.SessionRemoteException: File or Folder '.....csv' does not exist.

I am running FTP protocol. the remote path I set to \Uploads\ it seems that I can't specify the folder from the remote path when using FTP, but I can do it in SFTP. Is there any solutions to this? or the WinSCPnet.dll and exe behaves this way?

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

To generate 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.

Also, can you try 5.6.1 beta?
