I want to describe moving a list of files to another department. What word would be appropriate to use here? Currently I'm using "swap". Please let me know if that's suitable and suggest alternatives.
Thanks for the clarification.
Moving things digital may use the word like - transferring, proceeding from here to there or simply as we all know - moving! Among these, I'd use transfer as the system itself might say transfer complete!
Swap won't fit here. It means exchange and I don't think that's the case here (or at least in the scenario you mentioned).
swap (v) - to give something to somebody and receive something in exchange
