here is what I did:

lftp <<- DOWNLOAD
    user "password"
    set ssl:verify-certificate no
    mirror -cn / /localfolder;

this script works perfect to get the root folder on the ftp and sync with local folder, but here is what I want to accomplish now. I want to keep in my local folder only files that are newer than 30 days old base on the creation date of the file. So here is the example. lets say we run the script, the script will go to the ftp and download only the files that are newer than 30 days old and we do not have it inside the local folder and we will delete files older than 30 days on local folder. How can I accomplish this?
