The complete directory is only as new as the first day scheduled. For
example on a 7 day incremental rotation, the common directory would be
up to date as of Monday... then 6 directories for the rest of the
weekdays. Come Monday the next week the common directory gets updated
and the process repeats.

There may be a way to update the common directory for each day and
have the 'changed' files copied in the daily directories but I'll have
to check.
