put -delete file contents of a folder but keep the folder

My goal is to automate the upload of contents of a local folder to an FTP folder and then delete the contents of the local folder (but not the folder itself)
I'm running this command:
put -delete C:\Users\timday\Documents\TEST\ /TEST
And it works, except it also deletes the folder itself.

Is there any way to upload then delete the files within the folder but not the folder?

Re: put -delete file contents of a folder but keep the folder

Are you referring to the folder TEST? Or to some subfolders of it.
If to the folder itself, adding * to the end of the path should fix it.
Actually, you should be getting a warning suggesting that:
Selecting files using a path ending with slash is ambiguous. Remove the slash to select the folder. Append * mask to select all files in the folder.
(I do, when I try your script)
