Need help constructing a robocopy or xxcopy script which will allow me to copy any data and folders in the same structure as the original folder structure but only items which have changes as of 1/24/2011.

with robocopy just use the /MAXLAD:n switch where n is date of format YYYYMMDD
/e is for all sub-folders and files

with xcopy it's /e and /d:m-d-y

Need anything else?

Use this microsoft tool:
Richcopy 4.0.217.0

Http://dowload.microsoft.com/download/f/d/0/fd05def7-68a1-4f71-8546-25c359cc0842/HoffmanUtilitySpotlight2009_04.exe

It has à simple interface and it allowes you to create a copy job as detailed as you want.

Simple gui, comparable to robocopy, free and very granular.

Excelent for people who don't like scripting.

Good luck

Give Microsoft's SyncToy a shot. It's actually pretty good and easy to use:
