Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) is used to transfer files asynchronously between a client and a server. BITS Uploads allows uploading of data to a BITS server. An upload job uploads a file to the server, and an upload-reply job uploads a file to the server and receives a reply file from the server application.
