The last version of HFS was 2.3, released in 2017, using the Delphi language. HFS 3 uses Typescript, and currently there is no graphical interface, only command-line tools are provided, but it has a web-side management interface.


The latest version of HFS 3 is version 0.20.0, which was updated 11 hours ago. The developers provide Windows, macOS and Linux clients, as well as a node version.

After running, the Admin panel will be automatically opened, and then you can set a series of operations such as shared folders, accounts, monitoring, and plug-ins. Basically no need for a graphical interface.

HFS 3 supports virtual file system, that is, you can create a folder out of thin air, and then bind the physical folder under this folder, which is suitable for more detailed management of shared files. With the account system, you can download a specified file by specifying a user group or user.
