Check if file is locked

This step tries to determine if a file is locked by an other process.  It does this by trying to move it to itself.  


  • Step name: the step name, unique in a transformation
  • Filename field: the name of the input field that will contain the names of the files during execution.
  • Result fieldname: the name of the Boolean output field that will contain true or false depending on whether or not the file is locked or not.
  • Add filename to result: check this if you want to add the checked file-names to the list of files in the transformations result.
