-delete causing option exclude to be ignored

Hello,

using this code:
option exclude "*/; zzz"
get *.* D:\BACKUP\Afrox\Afrox_Downloaded_Files\20091201\
quit    

Winscp downloads all the files in the root directory and ignores the sub-directory as well as the file called "zzz" (don't ask :-))

If i add the -delete option:
option exclude "*/; zzz"
get *.* D:\BACKUP\Afrox\Afrox_Downloaded_Files\20091202\ -delete
quit    

It ignores the option exclude values and moved the sub-directories as well as the "zzz" file.

Please can someone help me here?

Ciao

That's by design. See documentation.

Thanks Martin for pointing it out (although i cant think of why it should be designed as such) - but it still doesn't help me.

How do I stop this application from removing the sub dirs and the zzz file as displayed in my option exclude statement??

You will need to use some more complex scripts. Sch as listing files to transfer first and then download and delete them one by one. Example scripts may give you some hints.
