Shallow Copy: Copy Component Dependents is unchecked
If we revise the component(s) in our copy of the process and save it, it will change the component(s) in the original process because both processes reference the same component(s).

 

Deep Copy: Copy Component Dependents is checked
If we copy over the process to the same folder level, when we copy the common component(s), it will create duplicate component(s).
If we revise the component(s) in our copied process and save it, it will not change the component(s) in the original process because both processes do not reference the same component(s).
