Following should work I think :

@echo off
set BASEPATH=Z:
set TEMPNAME=temp
set NEWFILE=X:\full\path\to\the\new\file.ext

pushd %BASEPATH%
for /R %%a in (.) do if exist "%%a\%TEMPNAME%" call :do_it "%%a"
popd
goto end

:do_it
rd /s /q "%~1\%TEMPNAME%"
md "%~1\%TEMPNAME%"
copy %NEWFILE% "%~1\%TEMPNAME%"

:end
