Preserve directory structure with MGET

Is there a way to copy all the subfolders and files with MGET and preserve the directory structure?

Is there a different command we should be using to do this?

For a number of project-specific reasons we want to do this via a batch file and we're not overly worried about security because it's a purely internal system.

Thanks in advance.

MGET appears to fail pretty often.  Programs like Filezilla and CoreFTP do not use it.  They do all that programmatically, item by item.  I think you can run Filezilla with scripts to do what you need.  Don't know if CoreFTP will support that.  And the built-in Microsoft FTP is pretty crippled.

It turns out that Script FTP is the ideal tool for this.
