What is a VFS file?

File containing an index of directories and files stored on a hard drive or other media device; used for creating 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.

NOTE: Some VFS files, including the .HPIMAGE.VFS file, can be mounted VFAT file system using the Linux mount command with the -o loop option.
