With the new r2010 comes a new fresh as a daisy imperial library.  All the customization to families, the custom modeled familes, and all the downloaded families that are stored in r2009 and previous libraries can only be retrieved by remembering they are there ("say didn't we spend dozens of hours creating a custom family we'd like to now re-use... was it in r9.1?  r10?  r2009?.  Let's rummage around in all the old imperial libraies and find out"... over and over and over).  What i'd like to do is just copy up the whole imperial library and have the copy function skip any identical un-modified files.  Or some automated update routine.  Windows 7 copy folders doesn't work that way: it wants to overwrite the new 2010 files with the source (older) file. 

 is there any way to do this?

This really doesnt answer your question, but what im doing here is I created  a revit standards file in our server, which holds templates, an office manual, and every family we use. If any employee creates a new family, or alters one of the standard imperial ones, he saves it in this new file. That way everyone has access to them, and in the event of an upgrade we wont have a mess with the files as they are kept outside REVIT files.

that assumes that if someone creates a new cabinet (for example) they know to look at both the imperial library and the company library.  Truth to be told, i am doing the same kind of thing, but don't much like it.
