FILE PROPERTIES TASK
This component reads the properties such as File Exists, File Size, File Name, File Content, Creation Time, Is File In Use, Hidden, ReadOnly and then assign them to SSIS package level variables.
Many companies receive large data files from outside their organizations and run the risk of loading the file prematurely during transmission causing an SSIS failure.
File Properties Task gives you the power to eliminate this problem by determining if the file is in use or transmitted before loading. File Properties Task additionally saves drive space by identifying old files ready for archive.
