Display a nested directory/file tree on a Confluence page, similar to Windows Explorer

Given a nested hierarchy of directories and files (the data only, with no access to the actual system), I'd like to generate a display similar to Windows Explorer, with each directory level expandable and collapsible. Such displays could include up to 25K files. I'm aware I might be able to do this with nested Expand macros but this seems ugly and wastes a lot of vertical space. Is there a better way? Thanks!

The Table of Contents macro can do this without the expanding part. The sidebar is where you can expand and collapse your directory. I get by with those. Did you find another solution @Daniel_Miller?

@Vincent Mann this was to create a single page displaying a directory hierarchy of some other system. I ended up writing some code that would generate output that looked like the Linux "tree" command, and also had UP/PREV/NEXT links (and the appropriate anchors) following each directory entry for easier navigation. No expand/collapse, unfortunately.

Oh that's cool, thanks for sharing.
