Copying data from one client to another

I'd like to know if we make client copy today, will the data will be copied to another client today as well? Suppose after one week I want to copy the rest of the data to the same client. Will I have to copy all the client data and overwrite it, or do I have an option to copy only one week's worth of data and update it?

A client copy overwrites the target client. The only exception is the user master records (SAP_USER copy profile). But, you cannot just copy a week's worth data using SAP standard tools. You need to use ALE to transfer the data you want or use third-party tools for that.
