Free, fully functional, great program. But UI looks old

Easy, minimal, powerful enough, portable, and extendable. Good program for sharing files over the Web.

Doesn't support unicode path/file names. Had to try it to find out since the FAQ doesn't mention it. :/

I've been looking for a server that I could run without hours of setup. FTP was a pain. I was all ready to fight it out with Apache when I found this. It honestly couldn't be simpler. Just add some files, set up a user account, and away it goes. It's so tiny that it can run all the time and never affect anything. It even works as a portable app. I can't believe how simple and functional it is. If you've ever given up on setting up a server, this is for you. It's so easy even a non-techie can share files in minutes.

I changed the licence to open source, because HFS is released under the GPL
