(OP)
Is there a way to copy all or part of one sharepoint folder to another? (within sharepoint - without manually unloading everything to a temp folder in Windows)

RE: Copy from one folder to another

No. Not within the UI anyway. You could teach your users to map a network place to source and target and perform it in Explorer, but that's fraught with problems also (e.g. the appearances of the "Forms" subfolder in this interface).

RE: Copy from one folder to another

Addendum: there's a choice in the Actions menu to open the library in Explorer. But once again, caveat emptor.

RE: Copy from one folder to another

Using the Library Tools-Library Tab, and Open with Explorer button is the best option for both of the directories (e.g., source and destination). Then do a simple Drag & Drop of the folders and/or files from one Explorer Window to the other. Note, your files may need to be Checked In once they are copied over to the other directory.
