Show all the photos in all the folders inside the main folder

Hello, I enjoyed the software and I was going to buy it but just right now there was the need for showing all the photos that was inside all the folders of my Main work folder. I mean, want to see all the images of the subfolders of a folder. BUT, they dont show up! Its not possible to show all the images together? For me its not possible to click folder by folder to see the content... to buy the software, thats a must.
Please confirm! Thank you!

Dear Sir:

We are dealing with raw data, not with embedded JPEGs. Those are large chunks of data.

The nested structures can be very deep, nesting of 10 and more, and each subfolder can contain several hundreds if not thousands of shots. Many people have terabytes of raw files saved in nested folders. File systems are actually not very fast, especially when we need to monitor the changes. Such an option shall cause a dramatic decrease in speed.

Another reason why we don't do it is safety. Oftentimes people make copies of the same image in different subfolders of the same folder. Seeing several identical images with the same or even different names in the same grid/thumbnail might be confusing, and might cause mistakes in adjustments or ratings/labels applied as well as with move / copy / reject file operations.

I understand but in this case the folders have around 100 to 300 files each, its not too much. I will waste much more time checking folder by folder, its not possible for me, time is very important for me and thats why I am checking FASTRAWVIEWER, to SAVE time. Otherwise I will be saving time in one side but on the other I will be losing so I could just keep with Lightroom or Expression Media.
Is there any workaround? I really like the fast open of the files but I really must see more folders in just 1 time.

Hugoli is right. User should have the right to choose between 1-level and deep-level browsing. Of course when browsing tons (thousands and more files) might be cpu-demanding, but when dealing with 200-500 files... no problem at all. Just give an option to decide to recurse directories or not.
Regarding confusing names ? No problem - FastPictureViewer deals with it without fail, the current directory path is visible - any possible doubles still exist in separate directories.

Subfolder browse mode is (finally) implemented in FastRawViewer 1.6, now in beta:
