When getting files from an external server using SFTP is there as way to collect only new files? we need to grab files, but the company on the external server does not clean them so we need to maintain data integrity by not pulling new files.

Use a monitor looking for modified or created files. Then, pass the filelist from the Monitor (that identifies only the newer files) and SFTP get that list.
