Collect for output gathers all the linked files (images, fonts) and the 
.sla files into one folder. I am not sure whether this target and 
preferably empty folder has to be created previous to the operation. You 
might give it a try.

Save does just that, save the .sla file wherever you want. Nothing else 
moves, nothing else will be copied.

When you want to put your work away on another device, it is advisable 
to use the Collect for output function as you will pick up each and 
every file needed to actually output your file correctly.

In any event, I still prefer, by far, to this technique, the Output to 
PDF function. Don't let anyone play around with your file unless they 
need to and unless the workflow is meant like that. Otherwise, a PDF 
will do, most of the time.
