SSIS - file import - detect file size

I have an SSIS package which imports file contents.

Sometimes these are blank files and I need SSIS to just move them to another directory.

Is there a feature in SSIS which would return the file size, and if it is smaller than x bytes, it just places it in another directory?

Sorry, not quite what I was looking for.

I solved it by creating a batch script which looks for blank files and moves the blank files for me, before processing any data.

if exist *.txt for %%i in (*.txt) do if %%~zi==0 move "%%i" C:\archive
