Create single hierarchical view for files & folders

Currently users have to choose whether they want to view the files view or the folders view. Many don't understand how this work and are mystified that when they go to the folder view they don't see the files that are not in a folder (which they would expect to show in the top level). Please create a single overview to show all files & folders which will show a single overview of all folders + all files not included in a folder in the top level. This should be done both for the community files views as well as the personal files views overviews but Community files especially.

To show all files as a flat (without folders) overview you could add a toggle in the top to switch between "Show files in Folder hierarchy - Show Files only". The default always being to show them in the folder hierarchy.

    Additional information: Users often delete the files they see under 'Community files' thinking these are duplicates from the files they put in folders. After doing so and then searching for their files in folders they are rudely awakened to the fact that their files there are gone too as these weren't duplicates but the actual files they just deleted.
