Hi dhiruz,

Some folks advocate running a package in some kind of loop. I've written way too many memory leaks in my time to feel comfortable running a package in a never-ending loop. I advocate either polling the directory at intervals - even 1-minute intervals - or utilizing a scheduler/service/application that will "sniff" the directory for you and fire an SSIS package in response.
