Yeah, you'll have to modify it to return information to you once it detects the change you're looking for. Once you get that then you can use your other script to do the actual folder copy. Detecting changes in a folder is kind of a heavy task, I doubt anyone is just going to hand you a fleshed out script. The parts to make what you want are here though. I'm sure with patience you can make it work.
