I have a long running SSIS package running on SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 and hosted on a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP? server. The package has recently stopped working for one particular configuration file. The package simply reads the config file and then performs a file action based on the values held in the config. In this case the value is to delete all files from a folder older than 30 days. The resulting error is " Access to the path '$RECHCLE.BIN' is denied.".
The same package (different config file) works for the previous step in my SQL Agent job. The only difference being the folder it deletes files from.
The package has been running fine up to last Friday (30th Nov) when it started reporting this error.
I am able to manually delete the file from the fodler in question without an issue.
I have concerns that this is due to a new virus/trojan/malware but don't have anything else to go on.
Can anyone else think why this error may be being generated?
