I want to download some remote files to a local directory whose path contains blanks.
Since blanks are interpreted as comand delimiters I get mess when executing the following command from a batch file getdata.bat:

set localdir=D:\mydata\2007 logs\
winscp /console /command "get ccc.log "%localdir%""

When I execute the same command on the remote console:

get ccc.log "D:\mydata\2007 logs\"

....everything works fine.
However I have problems passing the inside double quotes to the remote computer shell.
Even masking them with \ or ^ does not work.

How can I do this otherwise ?

This is limitation of Windows shell (cmd.exe), that I do not know solution for. You can use script file instead.
