Multiple files in folders and sub folders to one folder

Hi All

I have a script that connects to a FTP host and download all files on the host to a local destination. I do this by using the sync option.

Is there an option to copy all files from all the folders and sub folders to one single folder locally?

Thx

I have written an example script to do this. See the link in my updated answer above.

Transfer all in to a single folder, then all can be downloaded with a single drag and drop

I created a python script (capture attached) that goes in to all sub folders and moves the files that I need from each in to the parent directory (or any specified directory). Once I have all the files in one folder, I was able to select, drag and drop all of them at once for download.

This thread is about scripting.
In GUI, you can achieve this by using Find function to find all files recursively.

Then in the Find window, you can select all the files and use Download to download them to the same directory.
