possibly Mget *

you might want to issue the prompt command before the mget * to suppress prompting for each file.

from what i've read this is not possible with the windows command line. the suggestions i've read say to have the server make a single zip file, however in my situation there is not enough server space to do so.
wonder if it would be possible to do the reverse, have the server FTP the files to a home ftp server?

Have you tried mget * in Windows?
I just tried it and it worked.
I think the threads you read was were someone tried to use get * rather than mget *.

Dijkgraaf, does that get directories as well as files? I was able to get mget to get all files but not directories too

I tried the recursive option
mget * -R
But it threw access denied errors, but that might be just be an permissions issue so give that a go.

i didn't realize you also meant subdirectories.
you can probably do things like mget */* but it's unlikely the command line ftp will create missing directories.
you will need an "explorer-type" graphical ftp client and then you can just drag-and-drop directories.
