GetFiles with Remove set to true deletes empty directory

When executing GetFiles on a server with an empty directory, WinSCP is sending a command to delete the actual directory the files are stored in. Here's how I have the command setup:
session.GetFiles("/", _mySettings.DownloadDirectory, true, transferOptions)
This is not the behavior I expected.

Re: GetFiles with Remove set to true deletes empty directory - Me Too

Don't have the same syntax error as OP:
using Session session = new Session();
session.Open(sessionOptions);
 
var options = new TransferOptions();
options.OverwriteMode = OverwriteMode.Overwrite;
options.PreserveTimestamp = true;
options.TransferMode = TransferMode.Binary;
options.FileMask = "CM_*_*.ager.txt";
 
result = session.GetFiles("/test/from/", @"c:\temp\", true, options);
Running this code will pull all files that match the mask, but if there are no more files in the FTP directory, the from directory is deleted as well. If there are no files in the from directory at all, it will still delete the from directory.

You DO have the same syntax error as OP.
It should be:
result = session.GetFiles("/test/from/*", @"c:\temp\", true, options);

Or simply:
result = session.GetFiles("/test/from/CM_*_*.ager.txt", @"c:\temp\", true);
(no TransferOptions)
