Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you can only transfer one file at a time using Bluetooth, then you can Zip the folder using WinZIP or 7-Zip (open source/free at http://www.7-zip.org), then transfer the compressed zip file to your other device, unzip the file, and access the folder. It would probably be more efficient to Zip the folder as the compressed zip file will transfer much faster anyway. You did not mention what Bluetooth enabled devices your are transferring files between, but if you are transferring the compressed zip file from Windows to an Android device you can use ASTRO File Manager to uncompress WinZIP and 7-Zip compressed zip files. ASTRO File Manager is available for free in the Android Market at https://market.android.com/details?id=com.metago.astro&hl=en.
