I need the data in real time as individual files.

Unfortunately that's not possible with tshark/Wireshark. You can extract the TCP payload with tshark, however not in real time and not automatically as separate files.

See the following similar questions:

What you need is kind of a forensic network tool. Please check one of the following tools

Or maybe another tool listed here
