I see. I missed that functionality - probably not need it.

I've tested it with the Repo-browser and it worked like a charm, but
only with several files selected:

1. checked out the "tags" folder from a test repository non-recursively
2. opened the Repo-browser and browsed to "trunk" folder
3. selected 3 files, right-clicked and selected "Copy to working copy..."
4. selected the newly created folder.

The problem is the "Copy to working copy..." command only appears when
I select multiple files and not when a single file is selected or if
there are any folders involved. Probably it is a bug.
