Is there anyway up uploaded an existing folder/file structure into ss4 and have it parse it for inclusion into the file library (even if it means moving things out of folder roots?

Without this feature, the new abstracted system (I personally hate this abstraction filesystems) is a major inconvenience. SS2 and 3 have always had the command admin/assets/doSync to do just this.

Personally I would rather see the file in use positioned just where it should be and the versioned ones abstracted.

Is there any way to turn this off?

Just stumbled on this task: Migrate File dataobjects from 3.x. Probably there just for this situation...
