    Obviously, don't copy them but only copy the other files.
    If you go to Settings -> Miscellaneous -> Uploading -> Store uploads in this folder, and not use the default folder - wp-content/uploads - but another one outside of wp-content (maybe even outside of the blog's folders entirely? i.e. ../../uploads) it should be easier than copying all the sub-folders in the wp-content folder.
