We are have an issue were we are downloading an incomplete file that is open on the server and still being written to while we are downloading it. Does anyone have any suggetions about how to determine when the remote file is closed and not being written to.

Unfortunately there's no way to determine how other files handle the file (i.e. when they open it or close it). It's the job of the writer to lock the file and not allow any readers.

Sincerely yours
