MirrorCopy is a shell filecopy command, which is able to create and
update an exact copy (mirror) of all the files and subdirectories
(including there contents) located in a source directory. I use it to
maintain a mirror copy of my system partition on a bootable ZIP disk.
That way I not only have a backup of my system partition, I can even
boot directly off this backup (if I need to) and have all the tools etc
available I'm used to.

The main features of MirrorCopy are:

  - The destination directory will contain exactly the same files
    and subdirectories as the source directory - and nothing more!

  - The attributes (date, comment and protection flags) of the
    files and subdirectories in the destination directory are set
    exactly to the same values as in the source directory.

  - MirrorCopy takes care of what the destination directory allready
    contains:
    - only those files are copied, that need to be copied.
    - only those subdirectories are created, that need to be created
    - only those files and subdirectories are removed from the
      destination directory, that need to be removed.
    This is very usefull if you don't want to create a mirror copy,
    but if you want to update an allready existing mirror copy.

  - MirrorCopy can keep deleted or overwritten files in special
    'deleted-/old-files' directories.

  - The contents of the source directory is not changed in any way!
    Not even the protection flags (like the archive flag) are changed.

New in version 1.6:
-------------------
- Bugfix: If a file in the destination directory had to be replaced
  with a newer version, but the file was delete-protected ('D' flag
  not set) MirrorCopy didn't replace the file but instead stoped with
  an errormessage.
