You are be able to copy paste a solution's entire folder to a new location and you have to updated all references from old path to new.

Example: Test_MVC solution lives in c:\Test_MVC and you want to duplicate it as c:\My_MVC.

Forst copy paste folder c:\Test_MVC to c:\My_MVC.

Then c:\Test_MVC, rename all files that contain an Test_MVC to contain My_MVC instead.

Then c:\Test_MVC, delete *.suo.

Then open Visual Studio (without opening a solution), and do a Replace in Files like this:

1. Folder: c:\My_MVC

2. Filetypes: *.*

3. From: Test_MVC

4. To: My_MVC

Then open solution c:\My_MVC\My_MVC.sln and rebuild all.
