Copying multiple csv files

I have mutiple csv files at server1 at /apps/test/data.
I needed a script that would copy these csv files from server1 at /usr/data, put them in server2,archive the earlier files that were present in server2 before removing those already present.
Kindly help.

Your requirement isn't clear from these statements. You have mentioned two source directories and it is confusing for us to understand what is needed.

please give us more detail.

just for starting with these short information. All codes are not tested, please run it in your testing environment first.

log in server1
# backup
find  /apps/test/data -type f -name "*.csv" -exec tar uvf csv.bak.server1.tar {} \;
# scp the tar file to server2
scp csv.bak.server1.tar USERNAME@server2:/usr/data/csv.bak.server1.tar

login server2
#backup on server2.
find /usr/data -type f -name "*.csv" -exec tar uvf csv.bak.server2.tar {} \;
cd /usr/data
tar xvf csv.bak.server1.tar
