I'm trying to take a snapshot of a logical volume, then mount the snapshot and pull the files via winscp. The snapshot has some named pipes in it. Is there any way to pull a backup of it via WinSCP?

I am trying to synchronize the directory to a windows box, but it hangs on the named pipes every time. There are enough of them that it may be difficult to exclude them by file name. Any thoughts?

I'm running SFTP v3 using 3.8.2.
