No, no, no. The original from which that copy of mine is maid must go
to the bit bucket.  Which is not very easy I suppose.  I guess what
you can do is (say during an FTP transfer):

  a) copy a disk block to main memory and from there to the NIC buffer
(this is merely a display, as the memory is volatile :D)
  b) delete the disk block
  c) kick the card to transmit

Or you can send me the disk.  Note that you can't copy the work to a
diskette and then send me the diskette, because you can't copy.
