The point is that in case you stored your images inside the catalog folder, there is no folder structure to retain.

So to check, you go to the Folders section in the Library tool. Are your images stored in the My Catalog item or do you see your intern HD listed with subfolders? In the latter case, your images are not stored inside the catalog and it is easy to retain the folder structure.

However, are all your images are in the My Catalog folder, there is no folder structure to retain. You have to setup that on your external drive.
