A CDE Definition
To copy the document, record or image being worked on to a storage medium. If the file has already been created on the hard disk, saving updates the file by writing the data currently in memory (RAM) to the disk. All modern applications prompt the user to save data upon exiting if the user has made any changes to them.
Save to Disk
All processing is done in memory (RAM). When the processing is completed, the data must be placed onto a permanent storage medium, which is generally the hard disk. In the past, it might have been magnetic tape. See Save As.
A command in the File menu of most applications that causes a copy of the current document or image to be created. It differs from the regular Save command, which stores the data back to the file and folder it originally came from. "Save As" lets the user make a copy of the file in a different folder or make a copy with a different name.
Export with Save As
In many applications, the Save As option is the way to save the data to a different file format, which is called "exporting." If the Save As dialog box offers several file types, it is providing the conversion to those formats. For example, in a graphics program, the Save As dialog might have numerous graphics format options (see below). See export.
