RA FTP Job - Verify file being copied is no longer being written to

We are working through a basic FTP workflow where we copy a file from one machine to another. We of course want to make sure we're not copying half written files, so we'd like to be able to check if the file is done being modified prior to copying the file. Is there any way to do this as a step within the RA FTP Job? I know we could write seperate Unix\Win jobs that could check this as the first step in a workflow, but I'd prefer to be able to handle this in a single job. Any help would be appreciated.
