Synchronzie local. Need to delete the remote files.

Hi,

I am try to synchronize with the local option. This works really nice. Alle files including subdirectories are downloaded to my local directory.
But now I need to delete the remote files which are downloaded. But the need to stay in my local directory.

I do not get to figure this out how to do this. See the script below to see how it is working now without deleting remote files.

Thanks
Andre

///Script
open ftp://user:password@ftp.site.com
option confirm off
synchronize -preservetime local d:\mcc\archive /TestSync
close
exit

Thanks for your reply
With "get" this not a problem. I know.
But the issue is that I do not know up front which subdirectories there are on the remote location.
The external process on the remote server creates at random serveral subdirectories (up to 5 deep, and every day it can be different subdirectories) and places files in these directories. And I need all files and when the files are downloaded they can be deleted from the remote server.

Any idea?

Thanks
Andre

That's what the last section in the referenced FAQ deals with (I've updated it now to show an easy solution using -neweronly available in recent versions of WinSCP).
