[wikka-community] can WikkaWiki work for me?

Hello Alessandro,

no, wikkawiki can't do these things for you. You might want to try a Document management system (some examples: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Document_management_systems) with an import function for your existing system. Since the zeitgeist goes into the direction of organizing your content inside the program and let it set up the file structure you might have a problem. 

Another solution would be to hire a programmer.

Best regards,

I'd like to organize all this, NOT by building some kind of network/wiki manually copying all my folder structure (really, it's thousands of folders, and they're already well organized),
