Hello,
I am trying to get files from an external host with SFTP using WINSCP and a batch file, ultimately will use as part of scheduled task with many processes running batch file from homegrown console app. I am not able to get files with square brackets in filename and have not figured out the correct syntax to get it to work. I have seen some post about this in the forum but am obviously to ignorant to get it to work. Here is a log from my latest attempt, the file is 129[12].txt so I thought the filemask should be
-filemask=*[[*].txt to allow for characters before the [ and characters inside but this is not correct since it does not work. Here is the log file I generated...
