"Copy Newer" or "Copy Different" would not remove anything... but also wouldn't produce a bootable copy.

Thanks for the quick reply. It sounds like "Copy Newer" would be the way to go, since i've already created a mirrored HD (bootable disc) using "Smart Copy". I'm still confused on one point--if I use "Copy Newer" from now on to periodically update my second internal drive, using the scheduler, so as to not overwrite my Video Folder, would that now make the mirrored drive not bootable? I could be misreading your comment. Thanks for your help. Don't be shocked if I have another follow-up question (or two)...
