Spool File


Explanation:
Spool is: Tambor, carrete. I is also similar to collar in other contexts. Also arrollar, enrollar.

File is: Lima, Esmeril

So in my opinion this should be: lima de tambor
It would depend on the context.

Fichero/Archivo de cola de impresión


Explanation:
This refers to the file where documents ready to be printed wait for the printer to be available.

"Fichero" common in Spain
"Archivo" is common in South America

As for "escanear"... yes, it is used.

Scanning = Rastreo


Explanation:
'Escaneo' and 'Escanear' have not been approved by the Spanish Academy of Language yet. They are just 'Spanglish' slangs.

Fichero (de) spool / de entrada-salida diferidas


Explanation:
I thought you might like to know what Professor Javier Gomez Guinovart of the Universidade de Vigo advises: "Si lo dice un prof. de la informatica, poco preocupado por el purismo de la lengua, emplea directamente el anglicismo "spool" o "fichero (de) spool". En algunas traducciones con afan normalizador pueden encontrarse otros terminos mucho menos empleados en la vida real como: "fichero de entrada-salida diferidas", "fichero de operacion periferica simultanea" y otras invenciones de estilo. La palabra "spooler" puede traducirse en espanol como "integrador de E/S".

Nuevamente un millon de gracias a todos.
