try something like this...

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
            var
              DirInfo: TSearchRec;
              r : Integer;
            begin
              r := FindFirst('C:\Download\Test\*.*', FaAnyfile, DirInfo);
              while r = 0 do  begin
                if ((DirInfo.Attr and FaDirectory <> FaDirectory) and
                    (DirInfo.Attr and FaVolumeId <> FaVolumeID)) then
                  if CopyFile(pChar('C:\Download\test\' + DirInfo.Name))
                     = false then
                   ShowMessage('Unable to find Directory : C:\Download\test\' +
                               DirInfo.Name);
                r := FindNext(DirInfo);
              end;
            end;

This is how I would it, thou I must say I have never tried to copy the whole directory but here you go, hope this helps...
