I am trying to automate the downloading a file for backup purposes, however, the last part of the directory from which the file is stored changes on a nightly basis which is beyond my control although the directory structure remains the same ie: /Folder1 (This folder name changes daily with the last few characters changing)/Folder2/File.
Is there a way using the get command to download the file using wildcards for the top directory (Folder1).
I have attempted to use various combinations of which the system cannot find the file specified ie: get "/Fol*/Folder2/File1.
Any assistance would be humbly appreciated.

No it is not possible. But it easy to write a PowerShell script with use of WinSCP .NET assembly to find the name of the top-level directory.
