Using Terminal to do this can run faster and smoother than duplicating file contents with Finder.
Another neat trick - if you add the -V (verbose) command, so your Terminal command will look like this: ditto -V /old/path/ /new/path/ Terminal will actually print out a line with each content copy telling you the details of each item it copies over.

Command-Shift - Simply highlight the files you want in a group, either by clicking and dragging around the group or by selecting each icon with Command-Shift held down.
