Does anyone know of any SS methods of retrieving Files/Folders recursively from the `Files` DB table I need to build lists of files/folders from a particular directory inside assets/uploads been looking at File/Folder/Filelist API docs but really don't see any methods for doing this, I know I can write my own function and use recursion but really do not want to do this if there is a better way?

*Edit no matter wrote my own functions to retrieve the files/folders by ParentID still there should be methods in the File or FileSystem ti do this IMO
