See /d switch:

/d[:mm-dd-yyyy] : Copies source files changed on or after the specified date only. If you do not include a mm-dd-yyyy value, xcopy copies all Source files that are newer than existing Destination files. This command-line option allows you to update files that have changed.

For your example... changed on 5/14/2013 or later:

xcopy d:\*.*  w:\  /d:05-14-2013
