Writing a batch file to copy folders and files

Xcopy
I wanted to right a batch file that would copy only a new directory and the contents to another location, without copying any old directory and contents. This new directory would be nesting inside a directory, an a new folder will be added from time to time. I thought I could use the xcopy command... I hope I sounded clear.

Robocopy might be a better solution for this than xcopy.
