HFS: Folder Archives
Folder Archives are used to download an entire folder as an archive. An archive is a single file containing many files and folders.
Generally speaking, archives may come in several formats. HFS offers at the moment only the .tar format. It is supported by most archive software. Folder archives do not offer any compression for the downloaded files, instead they only offer the ability to download the entire folder in one click compared to many.
To manually archive download a folder. Add ?folder.tar to the URL when inside the folder.
