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.
E.g.:
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.
