I agree with Alexander. Scrivener is a unique and specialist writing tool first and foremost. I wouldn’t recommend it (at least the Win version) as a general database for content and files. I tried to use it for that and found that 1) I had hard time finding stuff (even text) once hierarchy grew too large and complex; 2) even managing images was a hassle (for example resized images kept changing their size); and it slowed down once there was a lot of data (e.g. file backup took too long every time I closed the application). In fact this experience was what made me switch to a wiki solution (but you said you don’t want to use markup).
