Copy system files in rooted android device

I want to copy files and directories from /root directory to a different folder inside the SD_CARD. So, I did lots of search, but couldn't found a useful answer.

I executed su command like this:

Process pp = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("su cp "+originDir+" "+targetDir);

Any help will be great. Thanks.
