Why is sync is deleting the files it just downloaded?

I have the CLI  (Node 4.4.4)  installed on a Windows server.  When I sync it downloads the files, but cleanup deletes the files it just downloaded, leaving empty folders.

I can see the .gz files in the folders, then the gz files disappear.

From the log:

downloaded 155 new files out of 155 total files

new files downloaded [ 'account_dim-00000-ba303757.gz',

  'assignment_dim-00000-b216da46.gz',

  'assignment_fact-00000-4b85b3a1.gz',

  etc..

  then

searching for old files to remove

will remove files [ 'account_dim/account_dim-00000-ba303757.gz',

  'assignment_dim/assignment_dim-00000-b216da46.gz',

  'assignment_fact/assignment_fact-00000-4b85b3a1.gz',

  etc..

finished cleanup, done!

The folders are empty. If I download again, it starts from scratch. I have tried using a status.json file but it is not getting updated. I am trying to automate the download as a part of my planned ETL process to a database. I am running everything from the default install location

Thanks.
