What is the recommended method for transferring directory structures with BITS?

BITS itself has no support for this. You need to write some own functionality, where it could be an issue also that you have no option to create folders on the remote site. Also, as BITS seems working more efficient on larger files, I'd suggest to add the directories into an archive (zip or whatever) and send this instead.

Thanks. That confirms what I suspected. I am going to zip things up to send them.

If anyone cares I decided on ZipForge. GPL isn't an option for this project and it seems to have the best price/functionality tradeoff.
