Currently the only module I know that provides this functionality is the the
disknode module, though it's not very flexible in that you're required to use
the created disknode content type.



Quoting Philippe Jadin <philippe.jadin at gmail.com>:

> Hello,
> Is there a module that allows users to attach existing files to node?
> The upload module only allows you to attach file from your computer,
> not existing files in /files.
> Isn't it a very common use case ?
> The upload ui could be like this :
> - Upload a file from your computer
> (current upload box)
> or
> - Attach an existing file from your site
> (some sort of ajax search system + file path text input form as a
> fallback for js disabled browsers)
> I can work on this as a contrib module, but it's strange this has not
> been made already. I want a compatible solution with core upload
> module.
> Did I miss something? I wanted to ask before working on it so I don't
> reinvent the wheel.
> Thank you
