I don't think you're missing a trick - in fact I think you've just discovered one! I didn't know that copying/moving an item between different site areas would work at all, so I consider that to be a bonus win!

Currently no there isn't a way to copy a folder with all the contents, it isn't really something that comes up often (I suppose it's rare that anyone would want two copies of a folder of content on one website).

So yes there could be a way to enhance this, but I'm not sure it has a lot of value for most people?

I used HTTRack and downloaded the whole site to move the Assets to another site. Otherwise you have to do it one at a time. Sames as deleting, one at a time.

Assets is a bit limited and I preferred the files tool.

The major challenge is when you delete a page or pages the assets hang around and it's a pin to delete them.

More so when you don't use foolders.

Be nice to delete folders or deletion of several files, especially when the content get's old.

Hi Joe,

I suspect that the answer to the following follow-up question will be ”no”, but I’m going to ask it in any case. 

Would it be possible to have one set of assets common across the whole site?  If I want, for example, to use the same photo or image in different areas (i.e. the public area and the Members’ Area, and a 3rd if that were to be created) then under current arrangements I need to upload it to each area separately, whereas if the asset was common across the whole site I would only need to upload it once.
