Thanks for the answer. I've tried this code and works fine:
function DownloadFileFromFTP: boolean;
var
i: integer;
ListaFTP: TStringList;
Path, PathLocal: string;
begin
result := False;
ListaFTP := TStringList.Create;

try
PathLocal := ..; //Directory where save the files

IdFTP.Host := HostNameFTP;
IdFTP.Port := PortaFTP;
IdFTP.Username := UserNameFTP;
IdFTP.Password := PassWordFTP;
IdFTP.Connect;

Path := ..; //Directory on ftp

IdFTP.ChangeDir( Path );
IdFTP.TransferType := ftASCII;
IdFTP.List( ListaFTP, '', False );
IdFTP.TransferType := ftBinary;

for i := 0 to ListaFTP.Count - 1 do
IdFTP.Get( ListaFTP[ i ], PathLocal + ListaFTP[ i ], True );

result := True;

finally
IdFTP.Disconnect;
ListaFTP.Free;
end;
end;

well, as it's your first question, i'll let it pass
all code you used, could have come out of the sample
just a little rearranging was necessary
