Here’s the scenario… you don’t have ssh access, but you do have ftp access, and need all the files…
wget -r ftp://username:email@example.com/directory/
Let wget do it’s thing for a bit, and you should have all the files you need.
(Of course you really shouldn’t be running plain old insecure ftp when sftp is available…)

Excellent! I’m looking for a good solution to backup my site, so I immediately tried your suggestion. It’s downloading my files and folders while I’m writing this comment!
I will set this up as a scheduled task and hopefully it will work as a reliable sulution!
