Does anyone know of a program that will work like xcopy, xxcopy or robocopy that can copy from ftp sites?

Id like to create a batch file to backup my ftp servers onto my home pc every night, and want a program that I can use and issue command line options to specify its servers and where to copy to.

If you're using windows, you already have mget
-i turns off interactive prompts for multiple file transfers
ftp -i username@host
ftp>cd \mydirectory
ftp>lcd \mylocaldirectory
ftp>mget *

Easy enough to create a batch file to do this and schedule it on a regular basis..

Im using the ftp suggestion suggested by Irmoore, but when I execute the file, it grabs everything and dumps it in 1 local directory, is it possible to get it to either just copy the files in the 1 directory into 1 directory on the pc, or get it to reconstruct the folder directory on the local pc?

Try 'wget'. That's what it does and what it is made for.

Are you still working on this? Can you close out this question before the cleanup crew gets around to it?
Thanks!

I actually used in the end netDrive and wrote a simple batch file using xcopy
