Good grief! Talk about using a sledgehammer to drive a tack.

If somebody out there knows how to do that, they are welcome to post it. I don't have that code.

You're welcome to post your more simple elegant solution. As was stated in the onset of the article, there are many ways to perform this task. Many people try to use maintenance plans to perform file cleanup on the OS. Unfortunately, those fail more often than not. Also, that option is also built on SSIS as well.

My point is why use a database process to act on a file system. Let the database system do what it is intended to do and, likewise, let the file system do what it is intended to do.

You can probably use SSIS to trigger FTP processes. The question is WHY would you do that.

Good example of using SSIS to manage files. For those that using logging to the file system for package runs.. this type of program will help clean up.

I was kinda disappointed when I realized that this was not going to be an article on Denali's filestream methods.
