    I have my server backup sites to a /backup/ folder. But how can I download those backup files vis SSH? I've tried 'get filename' but it says the command is not found.

    I agree, WinSCP is certainly a better option for transferring files. It effectively provides a visual FTP-style interface through an SSH connection.

    Go on, have a guess
    I use the client from ssh.com simply because I find it the best combined SSH and SFTP client for the way I work.

    If you're a MacOSX user, try rBrowser for this sort of stuff.

    Just tried downloading this backup file:
    -rw------- 1 r***** r***** 5573586296 Mar 16 09:31

    But after downloading 1.2 gig of a 5.6 gig it says it's finished!

    Cpanel is wonderful, but trying to download a backup from the server is a pain.

    Switched to winscp and it resumed the download, but got stuck at 4gb saying disk was full when it wasn't. Took me a while to figure out what was wrong but I eventually realised that it was the FAT 32 file system on the drive which has a 4GB limit! Converted drive to NTFS and everything is fine now.
