Uploading and downloading
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Uploading and downloading are related terms used to describe the transfer of electronic data between two computers or similar systems.
Their primary usage is as a verb: to download is to receive data from a remote system, such as a website, FTP server, or other similar systems.
By extension, the terms can be used as nouns. In this context, an upload is any file that has been uploaded, particularly if it is awaiting the recipient's attention. A download is any file that is offered for downloading or that has been downloaded.
Similar, but is less commonly used, the transfer of data from one remote computer to another is called sideloading.
