SAP PI 7.11 Sender FTP Adapter - Limit polling older files


i have a little question about des Sender FTP Adapter.

Following scenario:

I have to poll files from a ftp server. There is one file every day uploaded (in ever file are specific informations for a day). It could happen that the file provider detect some error in the files and upload new corrected files.

file name is like: *******2012-05-11.xml  (Creation Date could be 2012-07-12)

I have only the possibility to read the files with "Test". No archiving and deleting (because the files will be needed by other processes or customers)

I need the information from the file to write it in a database.

I have already implemented the scenario and checked in SQL statement creation that the file creation date ist not older than 5 days. This is to reduce the sql statements in the database.

The problem is that i have to poll every day all files and than filter the new informations. The problems are comming when i have to poll more folders and the year is going to end and more files would be produced on the ftp server.

Is there any solution to manipulate the ftp adapter to only poll files not older than 5 days?

many thanks
