I noticed that my sript will not download file if they do not have file extensions. Is there a way to make it do that?

[scriptftp="my_transfer.ftp"]:connect

# Connect to FTP server
OPENHOST("216.121.2.44","****","*****")
SETPASSIVE(DISABLED)


# Download the new or modified JPG files from the FTP site
$result=SYNC("d:\webservers\db_backups","/",DOWNLOAD,SUBDIRS,"*.*")


# Check if $result is different from "OK"
IF($result!="OK")
PRINT("Cannot complete the synchronization! Trying again.")
GOTO :connect
END IF

# Transfer finished, close the connection
CLOSEHOST[/ScriptFTP]
Try this:

[scriptftp="fixed.ftp"]$result=SYNC("d:\webservers\db_backups","/",DOWNLOAD,SUBDIRS,"*")[/ScriptFTP]

Note that I have changed *.* to *

"*.*" means "any file with an extension"

"*" means "any file"
duh, I should have known that.. thanks!!
