Creating a file upload space?

I'm moving over a site that has a relatively large file resources folder, containing JPEGs and PDF files. The files were posted to that folder via FTP and are referenced as, and so forth.

Is there some easy way I can recreate a folder like that in a Wordpress site, so I can upload all the files in one shot, and then just reference them by URL? I don't want to use the media area because it'll take a month of Sundays to upload each file individually.
