GeneralHard drive write latency problem Pin

I have a Windows Service running that does a number of file conversions docx->PDF->PostScript plus combining the files. I'm running into a problem of hard drive write latency. The application writes a file (converts to another format). When it finishes, it copies it elsewhere, but I am getting an error that the converted file is not accessible. I'm assuming that my server is configured to do buffered file writes like a storage server when what I really need is a file server that is done writing when it says it is done. I put in a time delay before the file copy, but it didn't seem to help. Is there a way to confirm the file write is complete or some way around this?
Any suggestions or links to the problem would be appreciated. Thanks, M
