Copying and Pasting Folders from one directory to another on the web server

I would like to request the feature of copying a folder from one directory and pasting to another directory on the web server.

I was surprised when this feature did not exist today. Delete and rename is possible but not copying and pasting. I had to copy one uploaded folder to three other directories. I uploaded once and then discovered I could not copy and paste.

If this functionality could be added I would be greatly appreciative.

All in all I find FileZilla to be a very solid product and I am very appreciative of all the work that goes into making it such a great tool.

The FTP protocol does not specify any means to copy directories (that's what they are called).

To copy a remote directory structure you first have to download it and then re-upload it again to a different solution. There is no other way.
