So Im sure this is an easy one. I have 2 files in different directories which are the same name. One is the 'source', the other is the 'destination' directory.

I am writing some code to look at whether there has been any change to the source and if so, I can then copy it to the destination. Just wondered what the best way is to compare the files. Would be keen to make sure I dont copy those that are have the same time/date!
