I have not used WinSCP before, so this may be an easy problem to solve, but I haven't figured it out.

I am using a script to connect to a remote server via SFTP. I am able to get to the correct remote directory. I have the following options set in my script: batch on and confirm off. I want to download all files from the remote directory and am executing the following: get *.* C:\myfiles\

When I do this only one of the 17 files in the remote directory is downloaded to the local machine. I am using version 4.1.8 of WinSCP. I have tried using both a .txt file and a .bat file for the script, but both result in the same problem.

When I copy the files using the GUI interface, it works fine.

Any suggestions?

Use get * instead of *.*

Some additional information:

option transfer binary is used

The files being transferred are bitmap files each about 180K in size. Don't know if that makes any difference.

Please post a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. For posting extensive logs you may use pastebin or similar application. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.

Btw, it does not matter if you use * or *.*
