File Extension VFS

.VFS File

File extension: VFS
File type: Virtual File System

Notes about the VFS file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The VFS file type is primarily associated with 'GnomeVFS'.

GnomeVFS is short for GNOME Virtual File System.

It provides an abstraction layer for the reading, writing and execution of files. It was primarily used by the Nautilus file manager and other GNOME applications before GNOME 2.22.

As of April 2008, the GNOME project has declared GnomeVFS deprecated in favor of GVFS and GIO, requesting that developers not use it in new applications.
