Need FTP with a "Flat File" view (Indiv file list, not in Folders)

Hi all - I have files in Folders, many levels deep. I need to FTP those files, all individually, into 1 single folder on a remote computer.  Looking for a solution, such as:

Does anyone know an FTP Program that has an Option to list the Local files without the Folder structure? Like a "Flat File" list of a folder tree.  (Mac would be great, but can move them to Windows if need to)

Thanks in advance for any help!

One thing to consider... How will you want to resolve name collisions?

filly question but it may help, since you can react the remote computers, copy all the folder and files to your PC, and then search them by *.*

you could use if_exists on collisions and append the filename.

You can script that behavior in Robo-FTP with this command:

RCVFILE "*" /subdirs /flat 

Open in new window

But I don't know if that helps you since, as far as I know, Robo-FTP on works on Windows.

Good Point on the file name collisions.  I don't need the Duplicates, but they won't hurt me either ... Hmmm ... I'd rather keep multiple copies if possible. But not really a big deal, and dups won;t bother me, as long as at least ONE of the dupl file names stays.  What were you thinking?
What is the client os? Are they under a single sub dir?

We have them on Mac & Windows, so a solution either one is OK.
There are approx 50,000 files, with approx 15000 Folders ... 2 or 3 files in each folder. So the Folder "depth" is simple, just 1 level down. Just lots of them...
