I dunno for inbuilt solution, but quick and dirty solution: what about a macro ?

Split Screen
Ctrl-F12 (start recording)
Left panel (source directory)
N, F7 (choose created/written/accessed), Tab (back original), Ctrl-Insert (copy to clipboard
Switch to right panel (target directory, same name)
N, F7 (choose), Ctrl-V (paste), Enter
Ctrl-F12 (end recording)

Then Alt-F12 (recall macro) as much as required.

Alternatively, ends macro with down arrow on both split-screen to be ready for next "macro synced directory stampdate".

Alternatively, name macro and recall as required with F12.
