Download

In computer networks, download means to receive data from a remote system, typically a server[1] such as a web server, an FTP server, an email server, or other similar system. This contrasts with uploading, where data is sent to a remote server. A download is a file offered for downloading or that has been downloaded, or the process of receiving such a file.[2]
