On Cisco router how to copy all of flash?

On a router I have a bunch of files and directories and files in various directories.  I want to copy the entire file structure - out to a my laptop or other system.  I am not local to the router so I can't just pull the flash and put it into a flash reader.  Any advice?

Try a TFTP client. Solarwinds has a freeware version which works fine with a cisco.
With the TFTP client you connect to the router and the you can copy all files and directories to your laptop.

Always have in mind that solarwinds tftp freeware is limited to 30MB maximum size which meay be not enough to copy large IOS

Here's what I found.  I can tar the files and directories into a tarball and use the archive command in IOS to unpack it in flash.  This way only one file needs to be uploaded.
