The current physical structure of my assets folders consists of a base folder (uploads), and four sub-folders (banners, images, documents, speakers). Four volumes have been created in Craft, one for each sub-folder.

This structure has worked well when using the Redactor WYSIWYG editor, as Redactor displays all volumes when managing assets. I have recently installed the Froala WYSIWYG editor and find that it has limitations when dealing with assets. Froala limits me to two (2) volumes. One for images and one for documents.

I thought the solution would be to create a new volume at the base level (uploads), then add subfolders (via admin->assets), that would reference the already existing subfolders (banners, images, documents, speakers). Then I could tell Froala to use the uploads volume and have access to all my assets.

The problem is that admin->assets will only let me add new subfolders, it is unable to map to an existing subfolder. One possible solution is for me to physically move the assets to other folders and delete the subfolders, then recreate them via admin->assets->create subfolder. Then move the assets back into the subfolders. But I'm not sure if this is a safe solution and am looking for advice.
