hierarchical file system (HFS): A feature of system software that lets you use folders to organize documents, applications, and other folders on a disk. Folders (analogous to subdirectories) can be nested in other folders to create as many levels as you need. In a hierarchical file system, a file is specified by its pathname rather than by a single filename.
