when writing to a disk file, is the file persisted to the folder when the write is complete? I want to make sure I don't retrieve files which are not done writing.

While files are being written to a disk file, they may be read, even though they are not complete. There is no way to block a file from being read while it is being written. However, the write is a relatively fast process, so appropriate scheduling can prevent this from occurring.
Thanks Mitch for your input on this issue.

Not entirely sure what your business scenario is but if you are writing large files that can take a long period of time, you may want to consider writing the file to a temporary directory and then have another process that moves the file. Also, if you are not opposed to setting up a ftp server, you can do a put and move using the FTP connector. Hopefully that helps!
