You can collapse the parent of the hierarchy. Then drag it into your library (Local or Global). Then you can drag it back out onto the timeline and you’ll have a copy.

You answered for duplicate. Thank tyou. But what about cloning?

You can try to clone the individual layers then reorganise the new hierarchy to match the old one, and see if that works.
