for /f "usebackq tokens=*" %A in (`git diff-tree -r --no-commit-id --name-only --diff-filter=ACMRT HEAD~1 HEAD`) do echo FA|xcopy "%~fA" "C:\git_changed_files\%A"
echo FA answers the inevitable xcopy question about whether you're copying a file or a directory (file), and the possible question about overwriting a file (overwrite All)
usebackq allows us to use the output from our git command as the input to our do clause
HEAD~1 HEAD gets all differences between the previous commit and the current HEAD
%~fA transforms the git output into fully qualified paths (needed to change forward slashes to backslashes)
C:\git_changed_files\ is where you will find all the files that are different
