HFS (HTTP File Server) Comments

http file server

about HFS (HTTP File Server) Apr 2012

I recommend you to take a look at this http file server. You can set up your own file server for managing and sharing files through web browser. It's like DropBox but self-hosted so that you can keep all your confidential files on your own server. The web based UI looks and feels like Windows 7 Explorer.
