Downloads the content of the specified remote file or directory to the local directory.
This method only downloads the items in the specified directory if the remotePath
parameter does not end with a directory separator (e.g. '/').
To also create the directory in the destination, add a directory separator character at the end of that parameter
public FileSystemTransferStatistics Download(
- The path and name of the remote directory where the files will be downloaded to the local folder.
This parameter can include filtering masks to limit the files that are downloaded. For example, if ""(empty string) is specified, the entire contents of the current folder will be downloaded.
If "*.txt" is used, all the files in the current folder that have the .TXT extension will be downloaded. If "/mydir/*.dat;*.cs,*.vb" is used (masks are delimited by ',', ';', and '|' characters), files with the DAT, CS, or VB extension in "/mydir" will be downloaded.
If no masks specified, the whole content of the remote directory should be downloaded.
If this value ends with a directory separator character like '/' or '\', the containing directory will also be downloaded. For example, if "/folder/" is used, files and subdirectories of "folder" directory and itself will be downloaded; the destination directory will contain "folder" directory and its contents.
Attention: some servers may be case-sensitive!
- The path of the local directory to receive files from the server.
