Hello. I've been recently trying to download all latest assemblies of B.Subtilis genomes, using the following command:

wget -nc -nH -r --cut-dirs=5 ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genomes/genbank/bacteria/Bacillus_subtilis/latest_assembly_versions/

I wonder, why this doesn't download anything at all? I can download individual files from folders, so it doesn't seem to be a permission problem, or is it?

Thank you!

Because content in that path are all symlinks of directories, which wget can't handle.

But there's a bash script here.

Or you can use some client, like Filezilla, which can do this.
