Create a Foreach Loop Container to loop through all files in the specified directory. Use the Variable Mappings in the Foreach Loop Editor to assign the filename  to a variable.
Within the Container, add a script task. Here is a snippet to help.

Imports System

Imports System.Data

Imports System.Math

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime

Imports System.IO.File

Imports System.IO.FileInfo
 
 
 

Public Sub Main()

        Dim LoopFileName As String = CStr(Dts.Variables("LoopFileName").Value)

        Dim Path As String = CStr(Dts.Variables("FileShareDirectory").Value)

        Dim LoopFilePath As String = Path + LoopFileName

        Dim File As System.IO.File

        Dim FileInfo As System.IO.FileInfo
 

        Dim CheckFileDate As DateTime = File.GetCreationTime(LoopFilePath)

        Dim FileDate As DateTime = CDate(Dts.Variables("FileDate").Value)

        Dim FileSize As Long = FileInfo.Length

End Sub

Dear Friend,
Create a new SSIS Project, rename the attached file and add it to this new project.
This package will read each file in C:\ and will apper a msgbox with all path and other msgbox with the filesize. (The size is in Bytes)
Test it and customize it!
If you need some help, please let me know!
regards!
Pedro
