File modify date comparisons

Two Windows 2003 file servers - Two identical shares with "almost' identical data -

The data used to reside on only one server.  The previous admin copied the data from one server to another but failed to move everyone's shares over to the new server.  Shares are now being accessed by different users on each server.  I want to consolidate the data to one server.  The problem is, some of the same data files from each server may have been modified by different users.  I can't just overwrite the older data since some users may be accessing this data as well.  Is there a way to run robocopy (XP010) in a reporting mode so I may see how many identical files have different access dates?  Is there any other tool out there?

ROBOCOPY has the /L flag, which only lists the differences, and does NOT copy

similary, use the /LOG flag to output to a file (instead of using the > redirection)
