How might I copy on only diffs between two folders into a third?

Here's the scenario --

* I have Folder A (which contains a copy of my latest source code)
* I have Folder B (which contains a copy of the base version of this same source code)
* Now I wish to create Folder C with just the differences between these two folders. Folder C is to contain only those files that have been updated or added.

Does that make sense? Any suggestions?

There are no built in actions in Visual Build Professional to do folder comparisons.

There are numerous third party programs created specifically for comparing files & folders, such as Beyond Compare (not free but one that we use) or you could create a Run Script step in Visual Build which uses the vbld_FSO object to iterate over the folder contents and do the comparison you need.

That's good advice -- Beyond Compare is a great tool (used it for years). I was just hoping I could do it all from VBP. You guys should work out a deal with them and offer Compare/Diff/Merge/Sync actions in VBP using BC2 engine. Just a thought.
