Synchronize remote with local and exclude subdirectories

I've this directory locally that I'd like to synchronize with a remote server. (I want my remote server to look like the local directory)
/DIR
 -> /A
 -> /B
 -> /C
I would like to exclude subdirectories within A, B and C from being synchronized.
I also have some files in /DIR that I also would like to be excluded from being synchronized. Just files in /A/, /B/ and /C/. I don't want to accidentally delete files or folders on either local or remote.

I don't get the .bat-file to start. Can anyone please check what I'm doing wrong? It doesn't post to the log file.
    "open ftp://USER:PASSWORD@IP:PORT/ -passive=0" ^
    "cd /DIR/A/" ^
    "lcd C:\A\ ^
    "synchronize remote -delete -nopermissions -transfer=binary -filemask="|*/" * ^
    "exit"
 
set WINSCP_RESULT=%ERRORLEVEL%
if %WINSCP_RESULT% equ 0 (
  echo Success
) else (
  echo Error
)
 
exit /b %WINSCP_RESULT%
Thanks in advance!

I'm sorry. I censored myself when writing the topic.

    "cd /DIR/A/" ^ 
    "lcd C:\A\ ^ 
    "synchronize remote -delete -nopermissions -transfer=binary -filemask="|*/" * ^ 
    "exit" 
 
set WINSCP_RESULT=%ERRORLEVEL% 
if %WINSCP_RESULT% equ 0 ( 
  echo Success 
) else ( 
  echo Error 
) 
 
exit /b %WINSCP_RESULT%

Re: Synchronize remote with local and exclude subdirectories

You are missing some quotes.

Here:
    "lcd C:\A\" ^
And here:
    "synchronize remote -delete -nopermissions -transfer=binary -filemask=""|*/"" * ^
See https://winscp.net/eng/docs/commandline#syntax

Also make sure that the ^'s are the very last characters on their respective lines (there cannot be any space after them).
See Why are some WinSCP scripting commands specified in a batch file not executed/failing?
@echo off
 
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.com" ^

    "cd /DIR/A/" ^
    "lcd C:\A\" ^
    "synchronize remote -delete -nopermissions -transfer=binary -filemask=""|*/"" * ^
    "exit"
 
set WINSCP_RESULT=%ERRORLEVEL% 
if %WINSCP_RESULT% equ 0 ( 
  echo Success 
) else ( 
  echo Error 
) 
 
exit /b %WINSCP_RESULT%

Thank you for your corrections, Martin!

Now I at least receive an error log. It's written in my native language.

Re: Synchronize remote with local and exclude subdirectories

OK, there's one more missing quote, and the * should not be there:
    "synchronize remote -delete -nopermissions -transfer=binary -filemask=""|*/""" ^
