    There is a program that most all iPad users have called GoodReader. It's the 'Swiss Army Knife' for the iPad and it can store files all together and in folders - or however you want them - and can transfer files to and from your PC using either WiFi or USB without the need for iTunes. It's built in web-browser can download files too, something that Safari doesn't offer - except for PDF format. From within GoodReader you can open those files in any app that supports that type of file. Having said that, though, when a compatible app does open that file it makes a local copy that it works on, so the original copy in GoodReader is left untouched. If you want to store the modified file in GoodReader you have to transfer it back there by some means.

    GoodReader can also attach several files to an email and then send them using the iPad's native Mail app - something you can't do from within Mail itself. It also gives you the opportunity to annotate PDF files and save the resulting file so that it can be read on a PC or Mac.

    As Tim said, GoodReader is probably your best bet if you have to do it from the iPad. It is going to be tedious though, since you'll have to actually copy the files to and from the iPad to move them.

    The better bet is to use a computer, or better yet go to me.com in a desktop browser (will not work in an iPad browser). That way you'll only be moving files around on the server. Much faster.

    You should also start thinking about making sure you have backups of all those files. The demise of MobileMe (and therefore iDisk) is only a year away. There will probably be some kind of migration tool, but it would be risky to depend on it completely.
