I suppose you have the same number of cache-dirs and the same number of
level1 and level2 dirs (configured in the squid.conf). If all these apply
then you can do the copying the cache_dir contents.

Just an idea: cache B would like to copy the the content of cache A.
1. Take a list of URLs from cache A's store.log
2. Configure cache A as a parent of cache B.
3. request URLs (present in the list got from cache A) from cache B (using
squid_client, for example).
