sounds to me you are copying not on the working copy root level but
lower. Meaning you are copying a subfolder of the working copy to a
place also inside the working copy.

But that's only a guess. There is not enough information to tell for

You need to provide more/complete information about what you are doing
(what did you check out, what directory did you copy from where to
where, what do you try to check in, ...)
