So i managed to fix this by having two get functions.

first i get the file i want by its self with
-filemask=TK*>1D

and then get the rest of them with
-filemask=*>1D|TK*

RE: help with filemask

the real problem here was that filemask does not understand spaces. so if you copy the search from winscp with the ask you need, its going to give you an error

You can use spaces in file mask, if you quote the file mask. Though I do not understand, what you mean by "copy the search".
