Separate log file for FTP transaction

I need to upload a logfile from a ftp download to confirm files were successfully retrieved. The build log includes each step, and I don't need the vendor to see that. How can I capture JUST the ftp transaction (including time/date stamp)?
Using 7.5

1. Disable logging for the other steps

or

2. Temporarily change the log file for the FTP step

or

3. In the vbld_StepDone script event for the FTP step (or the following step), write the timestamp and LASTSTEP_OUTPUT contents to a file.

Thanks-I ended up creating a "Write File" event populated with some text and "%LASTSTEP_OUTPUT%". Works perfectly.

I should have realized this all along, but this was exactly the hint I needed. Thx.
