Poll when E4407B is done saving file to disk

Is there any way to find out when the E4407B spectrum analyzer is finished saving a file to disk (such as a screen image .gif or trace data .csv)?

For example after writing "MMEM:STOR:TRACE TRACE1, \"c:\\mytrace.csv\"" (C++ string literal) to the GPIB bus, I'd like to transfer the file to the local computer's drive. However, I need to know when it is finished saving the file (which can take a while, depending on number of data points). Otherwise the program would try to copy a file that isn't there.

Polling method and service request method examples would be helpful. At the very least if someone could point me in the right direction that would be great.
