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 http://www.mydomain.com/resources/thefile.pdf, 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.

Thanks!
