File Transfer in SSIS

Hi All, I have to perform a file transfer of around 20,000 pdfs which is approximately 15gb of data together. I need to execute the transfer from ssis , which allows me to choose from several options. What is your recommendation for the best approach to execute this efficiently . Thanks

It has to be via SSIS? In this situation I'd use Powershell to facilitate this in batches. I have used Powershell in conjunction with Robocopy as well with great results to move a large number of files.

Thanks..Yes it has to be in ssis .. due to a framework restriction. However i could use c#/powershell to do the copy. I will check the robocopy options..

Other than using the file system task, I'm not sure on any type of best practices to facilitate this through SSIS. I would batch them out by created date or something just to manage how many files are being moved at once. Do they have to be moved all at once?

Yes they do all have to be moved.. Batching them is a good idea.. I will have rename them as well as I move..
