The solution my team has used is to monitor the file size. If the file
has stopped growing for x amount of time (we use 45 seconds) the file is
done copying. Not elegant, but it works.
If you know that files appear in sequence (a single serial upload
process, not multiple uploaders) you can augument this with a check
that an additional file has started to upload, ergo the current file
has finished. Of course, only you can decide if this might be relied upon.
