Using the wcopy.exe command line interface

As well as the GUI client, WebCopy also includes a command line tool which you can use to quickly download files. The tool, wcopy.exe, is located in the WebCopy application folder.

Unless otherwise noted, whenever the command line tools expect a filename, this can either be a fully qualified path, or will be resolved against the current working directory.
