HFS is an HTTP File Server. It requires little to no setup, and can easily transfer files between computers, mobile devices, and even virtual machines.
Most updated version as of November 5th, 2019
What does not
Known bug: After minimizing to tray, window does not return (see extra comments). Icon also flashes on a refresh quite often in tray, which does not occur in Windows. File transfer to virtual machine (QEMU'ed) does not work via IE in VM (see extra comments).
What was not tested
One workaround to restoring the window is to reload the file system. However, any connections still present will be terminated. Also, closing and re-opening HFS works as well. Author of software says this is fixed in beta version (v2.3), but is untested by me. One workaround to transferring files to a Windows XP VM is to have the VM use Firefox instead. Otherwise, empty file containers will be downloaded.
