The script sorts one by one all CSV files in the general folder of all client terminals to obtain their sizes. After getting the size, its value is compared to the "InpThresholdSize" threshold value and according to the result the file is placed either in the "InpBigFolderName", or the "InpSmallFolderName" named folder. Thus large and small dimension files are sorted.

Besides using the FileSize() function, there are also the FileFindFirst(), the FileFindNext() and the FileFindClose() functions used in the script to sort the files and the FileMove() function to move them.
