The ODI tool called OdiFileWait tool is used to wait for a file on a network drive (directory) and to copy it to another folder when a new one is found to be present.

This step ensures that the file upload process is complete before it starts copying the file to a target directory.

In cases where the file is small there appears to be no problem with OdiFileWait and processing goes as expected.

However, when very large files are being processed, this step fails with the following message \\..........<LARGE_FILENAME>.zip (The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process)

although the file is present in the expected folder.

What is the problem here ?
