transfer

To send data over a computer channel or bus. "Transfer" generally applies to transmission within the computer system, and "transmit" refers to transmission outside the computer over a line or network.

Transfers are actually copies, since the data are in both locations at the end of the transfer. Input, output and move instructions activate data transfers in the computer.
