If the context is sufficiently clear ("I know the file is here"), then it may be possible to simply refer to sending, transferring, moving, or relocating the file. All you need to do is specify the destination.

I totally spaced this out, but about a year ago I wrote a doc about uploading/downloading info with mobile devices, and that is exactly I how referred to it "Transferring Data to MD" and "Transferring Data from MD." Got my point across and avoided a technical term that, for the purpose of the doc, would have been an unnecessary addition. Haven't had any complaints about it and I have received a few positive comments about the clarity. :-)
