SSIS locking file in data flow task, not releasing when completed

I have an excel file that is loaded in a data flow task and then is renamed to include the date and moved to an archive folder.  For some reason the data flow task is locking the file and preventing me from moving it even after the task has completed.  I have this process working under several packages for several other files and don't see any difference between them.  The Excel.exe process is not running and I can't find anything that would point me to what could be causing the issue.

Has anyone had a similar problem?  The closest thing I found was to move the file to the archive folder before processing, but this will not work as the file name changes to include the date.

Thanks

How are you renaming the file, is that using .Net?

It was renaming via a File.Move in the script task.  

The good thing is that it started working without me doing anything, the bad thing is I don't know the cause.
