WinSCP 5.9.3

I'm trying to download the latest files that match a mask.

"open sftp://user:pass@host:port" "get /path/to/abc_*.csv /path/to/xyz_*.csv d:\downloads\ -latest" "exit"

I want it to get the latest file that matches abc_*.csv AND ALSO get the latest file that matches xyz_*.csv. So it should download two different files.

However, the behavior seems to be that it gets the latest file that matches abc_*.csv OR xyz_*.csv. It downloads one file.

Is this the expected behavior? Is there some way to get it to download two files?

Yes, this is an expected behavior. To get two files, use two get commands, each with one of the masks.
