Mass copying of files out of Sharepoint

I'm first time user of Sharepoint.

Currently I'm using browser to access docs in a Sharepoint.

Instead of opening files one by one & then save to my local
HDD, is there a  way to massively select a few hundred files
& copy them to my local HDD?

Can we sort of map a drive on our laptop to the Sharepoint
& just use Windows Explorer (or 'xcopy' ) to copy out the
files?

Must we use a browser to access Sharepoint or Windows
Explorer would work as well?

Is this a security concern to copy out files massively & is
there a log tracking who copies which docs out?

There's an option to open the repository in Windows Explorer; once this is done you can manage the files and folders as you would any others.

Can guide me where or how to use this option?
If this option is not enabled, how do I enable it?

Open the library containing the data you want to copy.

On the toolbar, click Actions and choose Open with Windows Explorer. A new window will open with the contents of the library displayed as files and folders.

You need to be on a 32 bit browser that is compatible with SharePoint.  This is the number one reason why people can't use Explorer.
