Workflow access to uploaded files not saved to the DB?

Is there a way, via workflow, to access files that have been uploaded but which are not “associated” with a Thing in the DB?

IOW, I’m looking to somehow access “orphaned” files much like can be done in the File Manager. How does the File Manager “see” files which aren’t in the DB? Am I overlooking something?

@PWC Do you know if it possible to read the main directory files with the Bash plugin?
