Hi Suresh,

You have two options in this case.

1. Setup your task to check for files that match your criteria with an IF statement (Use Get Long List). If there aren't files end gracefully.
2. Setup your task (action) to ignore that specific error in the "On Error" tab.

Let us know if that works for you.
