    Hi @NANAWARE, Sagar ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A platform and thanks for posting your issue here.

    As per my understanding you want to know a way to avoid creation of empty files which gets created as a part of Fault tolerance even when there is no warning to be logged. Please let me know if my understanding is incorrect.

    Unfortunately, even if there is no warning to be captured the files would be generated . That's how it works right now.

    Kindly refer to this thread.

    Appreciate if you could add your vote on the feedback shared by other customers for the same request in our Azure data factory feedback channel, which would be open for the user community to upvote & comment on.
