FILE TRANSFER PROTOCOLS DEFINITION (continued): … File transfer is the movement of one or more files from one location to another. A collection of electronically-stored files can be moved by physically moving the electronic storage medium, such as a computer diskette, hard disk, or compact disk from one place to another or by sending the files over a telecommunications medium. On the Internet, the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a common way to transfer a single file or a relatively small number of files from one computer to another. For larger file transfers (a single large file or a large collection of files), file compression and aggregation into a single archive is commonly used. (A zip file is a popular implemention.)Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is a popular protocol for transferring files in a routine manner between businesses.
