This is a strange requirement as in ideal world no-body wants duplicated data in their server. To answer the question I can suggest below two solutions :
1) In the end of the graph call a Run_program which has simple shell script to make copies of the file
2) Create a plan which calls a graph (a) and then a loop component which calls another graph in loop(b).
a) This be your graph which creates one output file sat single.dat
b) This graph will have the input files as single.dat and output files as out_${num}.dat. The num parameter will come from loop of the plan task
