Introduction:
When creating a task within a workflow, there is the ability to create preconditions on the task which must be satisfied in order for the task to execute.

One of the preconditions available is a CHECK FILE which can either be set to check if the file exists or if the file does not exist.
Question:
Does the "exists" choice  for the CHECK FILE precondition on a task within a workflow validate that the file is 'stable', and that is its file size is no longer changing?
Answer:
The CHECK FILE exists condition will be satisfied even if the file is not stable.
