File type specification:

System file type icon System file type

The VFS file extension is associated with The Virtual file system, that is very similar to real file systems Windows uses (like FAT32, NTFS, ...).The main difference between the Virtual file system and a real File system is that the Virtual file system uses the real File system within its implementation.

A *.vfs file contains an index of folders and files stored on a hard drive or other media device type. It may be used to create a virtual file system, which speeds up browsing and searching for files.

Help how to open VFS files:

Unless there are suggested applications listed below the extension description, that are able to open the system files, there is usually no way to directly open or access system files as their functionality is only as part of the operating system.

Any attempts to edit system files is strongly discouraged, as it can cause the system to be corrupted and not work properly.

How to convert file with extension VFS:

Unless there are suggested applications listed below the extension description, that are able to convert the system files, there is usually no way to convert system files into any other file format.

Any attempts to rename system files is strongly discouraged, as it can cause the system to be corrupted and not work properly.
