You will want to look at the command rsync.

without testing.   this is something of what it'll look like.

rsync avr --delete /mnt/source /mnt/destination

You don't need a script, just define a cronjob as

0 0 * * * rsync -a --delete /mnt/test1 /mnt/test2

Does rsync also verify the time stamp on file. If we have same file on both directories . i still need to copy the file from A to B because it modified

Thanks

As well as you can set it to check checksums on the file.  So if for some reason you are not keeping Atime and Mtime on the filesystem rsync will still keep the files in sync.
