I need to do data transfer text file to SQL server. However, the text file is a log file that is generated from running the command robocopy.exe on the command prompt.
The text file log.txt looks like the file I attached here as an example. I cannot send the exact log file from my machine due to security reasons.

 This is the strange part: when I try to import the file log.txt  into SQL Server, there are unicode characters(square boxes) that appear randomly in the Columns tab of the Flat File Source. They do not appear on the log.txt itself BUT only at the time of data flow transformation. Can anyone please help?
