What is a VFS file?

A VFS file contains an index of directories and files stored on a hard drive or other media device. It is used to create a virtual file system, which can speed up browsing and searching for files.

More Information

HP All-in-One printers may create a new VFS file on memory cards inserted into the card slot. This occurs when the "Faster Browsing" option is enabled. To prevent VFS files from being added on memory cards, push the "Setup" button on the printer, choose "Preferences," then select "Enable Faster Browsing" and choose "OFF." The VFS file that the printer creates is often named .HPIMAGE.VFS. This file stores .JPG thumbnail images created by the printer for faster browsing on the printer's LCD display.

How do I open a VFS file?

Typically, VFS files are not meant to be opened. However, some VFS files, including the .HPIMAGE.VFS file, can be mounted within VFAT file systems using the Linux mount command with the -o loop option.

.VFS File Association 3

A VFS file is an animated slide used by VideoMakerFX and Explaindio. It is saved in an archive format and stores resources that make up a slide, which includes graphics, audio, and textures. VFS files are typically used for creating promotional videos, business presentations, and product reviews.

More Information

VFS files may be created and opened by VideoMakerFX and Explaindio. The VFS file is the main file format associated with the two programs similarly to how the .PPTX format is associated with Microsoft PowerPoint. If you need to share the VFS file with someone who does not own either of the programs, you can export it to a more widely supported format.
