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.

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.
