Hierarchical File System

A file system (used by the Apple Macintosh, as well as some other types of computers) that stores data in a top-to-bottom (or hierarchical) organizational structure. Data access thus starts from the top of the hierarchy and proceeds downward. HFS, on the Macintosh, replaced the older Macintosh File System.
