What makes you say they are not synced properly? What problem you encounter? How is it mirrored?
Btw, after you copy the directory, make sure you can access it, its the objective right?

The situation is like this. Suppose I have a file which is corrupt in primary disk.

How can i copy the same file from mirror disk,.

If the disks are mirrored then you will have the same copy on mirror disk also. How do you know the one which is on the mirror disk is not corrupted? The only option seems to is restoring from backup, if any exists.

Put your disks in raid 0+1
you can use like this

PHP Code:
prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c2t0d0s2 fmthard –s - /dev/rdsk/c2t1dos2 
with this command you will get information about disks

and this command copy all data from mirror to primary HDD
metadb –afc3 c2t0d0s2 c2t1d0s2
