You can generate it using a repeater.

A repeater will create it's inside for every Element you give it

what do you need to do?

Html side

set everything you want to repeat for every File inside the <asp:repeater> tag
In your example you must add the LinkButton

Code side
Create the OnDataBound method for the repeater
for the given e.Item as filename you set the linkbutton with the data.
(know the first time you come accros the e.item can be null just leave the method

In the onLoad you can set your list of filenames as DataSet for the repeater and call the DataBound method.

What will happen?

The list is databound to the repeater and the repeater is called to be DataBound.
On that moment the Code will send every item one by one through the onDataBound method
there you'll set the inner Linkbox


hope to be clear and helpfull.

See this for simple solution in Table

Add one Panel control in Aspx page like this
                  <asp:Panel id="Panel1"  runat="server">Panel</asp:Panel>

then in code behind linkbuttons like this

      Table table = new Table();
                  for (int i=0; i<10; i++)
                  {
                              LinkButton lbt = new LinkButton();
                        TableCell cell = new TableCell();
                        TableRow row = new TableRow();
                        lbt.Text = i.ToString();

                        cell.Controls.Add(lbt);
                        row.Cells.Add(cell);
                        table.Rows.Add(row);

                  }
                  Panel1.Controls.Add(table);
                  Panel1.Visible = true;
