HTTP File Server or HFS is a small utility which allows one to share files with others by creating http links for every file
Now when I want to download multiple files, the software creates a "tar" file with the selected files
Now my question is, when I'm creating a tar file, are the files duplicated? Do I need double the space?
For example, when I'm zipping 3 files of 1 MB each into an archive, a new file is created of say 2 MB which contains the original files. So total space required is (3 + 2) MB = 5 MB
Does the same thing happen when creating tar files?
