2.If any one of the file sizes is 10 times bigger than that particular file average size then need to send email to my team via SSIS.

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
