You can hyphenate ======================> non-local file system
off-site file system

You can add a word =====================> remote access file system
(RAFS) - an FLA

You can subtract a word ================> remote system (RS, a 2LA)
remote file (RF, another 2LA)

You can substitute words ===============> remote system access
remote file access
