Dear team,

Re: Get files and exclude subdirectories then move

To download the files use:
get -filemask=|*/ /home/user/dir1/*
How do I transfer (or synchronize) directory non-recursively?

Though the move part is more complicated, as the mv command does not support file masks, so you cannot exclude the subfolder.
Cannot you identify the files for example by an extension?
Cannot you move your child subfolder elsewhere (not under the dir1)?
