Disk File

 

A file created on your hard drive (or on a diskette, a thumb drive, or some other storage medium) with a file name followed by a period or "dot" and a suffix up to three characters long. (The name for Diet Power's main file, for example, is Diet.exe.) "Outputting" information to a disk file is something you can do instead of printing the information on papera handy alternative when you want to save something for printing later.
