Folder Comparison

Last Modified: 2016-03-08
There are two folders
FolderA - Contains multiple sub folders and multiple files
FolderB - Also contains multiple sub folders and files (more sub folders and files than FolderA)

Consider it like this FolderA is a updated version of FolderB but only contains updated files.

Now I want to compare FolderB with FolderA and copy all the common files from FolderB into FolderC with out loosing structure.

Example: if there is a file testing.xml in  FolderA/ext/tmp/settings/testing.xml  and also in  FolderB/ext/tmp/settings/testing.xml
then I want to copy  FolderB/ext/tmp/settings/testing.xml  to  FolderC/ext/tmp/settings/testing.xml

How can I do that using simple script.
