How does SAP DS handle files that are locked / being used?

I am looking for a definitive answer on how SAP DS is handling the following scenarios.

My DS job needs to continuously poll a folder which holds many files. Only completely processed and unlocked files should be processed.

Examples of foreseen processes

- Someone will be editing a file with a application. And hence overwrite the file once changes from application is complete

- Someone might overwrite current file via simple copy

From what I can see, the actual file being processed by DS will ignore if a file is being overwritten. Does the "file in progress" have perhaps a different extension and is only visible once the process is complete?

I would like any information on this topic, as I cannot see much documentation or consideration when writing file based DS jobs for locked files.
