How to copy in unix preserving the entire folder structure while copying.
I tripe as cp -rp 'source folder' . (present folder)
But I get something like below:
cp: preserving permissions for `./data/test.txt': Operation not supported
What is this?

You tipically get such an error if the destination file system does not support ownership permissions (for example, if it's samba)
