Hello all,

I'm looking to backup an entire FTP into a local folder.  I can do it via batch but the problem is theres lots of subfolders.  How can I achieve this in one shot without scripting every single subfolder?

Thanks in advance!

Check out the FTP application FileZilla, you can grab the root directory and download all files to an alternative source.

Thanks. Is there a way to automate with this?  Command line or scheduled task?

FileZilla does not support automation via scheduled task or command line.  You may want to post this question in multiple zones such as scripting and batch zones so those experts can more easily become aware of your question.
