Does Confluence support folder structure?

Hi there, i just created a file list, but only to find out that inside each file list i can only upload files, not a sub-folder. I think this is quite terrible. Is there a way to work this around? Thanks.

To add to Rodney's correct answer, Confluence pages can be set up in hierarchies, with parent pages and multiple children pages, much like folders and subfolder hierarchies. Files can be attached to these pages. 

This works great for use cases where Confluence's editable web pages can enhance the work process. But Confluence does not look like or work like a FSS (File Sync & Share) product such as Box, Dropbox or Google Drive.

We use one of these products to enhance our organizations choices, and often 'mash' the two together when called for (such as link to a FSS product folder from a Confluence page; that link can involve having the folder display on the Confluence page. Just use the HTML macro and insert an embed (iframe) link.

The link trick sounds good.

Consider a page as one folder -  for each folder on your pc,  create a new page
