I found a problem when copying folders including subfolders/files into the folder of the same name but on another volume or in another folder.
from folder1 the subfolder1 and files file1,file2,file3 shall be copied into the folder2 with subfolder1 and files file_a, file_b,file_c
Regardless if "copy" or drag&drop is used, the entire structure is rewritten by subfolder1 and files file_a, file_b,file_c and former subfolder1 and files file1,file2,file3 are deleted.

How to make it? Or is the copying file-after-file the only way?

    Martin, OS X doesn't merge folders by default, like Windows does. Starting from OS X Lion, Finder can do limited merging but that features is not available in Path Finder yet.
    Anyway, there's a suggestion ticket for it and we'll notify you when there's an update.
