Hi all,

New here, apologies if this is easy and already covered

First of all, can WinSCP actually do what I am trying to achieve and second, can it be automated into a batch command file that I can trigger via Task Scheduler?

What I would like to achieve is to schedule (via Task Scheduler) a batch file, that will automate the following:

- Connect to a remote FTP site.
- Mirror contents to local drive to include downloaded new/changed content FROM the remote FTP site TO the local folder AND delete content on local folder which no longer exists on FTP site.

Can I do this with WinSCP?
Can someone help with a how to set this up with a batch script?

Thank you all in advance for any help on this.
