here's a powershell script which detect the drives in the machine (C:, D: etc), then runs through all file system of each drive and
looks for a folder named "battle quest".
then copy it entirely into %temp%\bquest\PU.


cls
$dir2copy = [environment]::GetEnvironmentVariable("temp","User") + "\bquest\PU"
$dir2find = "battle quest"

function Recurse([string]$path) {
	
  	$fc = new-object -com scripting.filesystemobject
  	$folder = $fc.getfolder($path)
	Write-Host $folder.Name
	
	if($folder.Name -eq $dir2find){
		return $folder.Path;
	}
  
  	foreach($i in $folder.subfolders) {
		$res = Recurse($i.path);
		if($res -ne $null){return $res;}
  	}
  
  return $null;
}



Get-WmiObject Win32_DiskPartition | 
ForEach-Object { 	
    $partition = $_ 
    $logicaldisk = $partition.psbase.GetRelated('Win32_LogicalDisk') 
    if ($logicaldisk -ne $null) { 
        $logicaldisk | foreach {
			$path = Recurse($_.Name)
						
			if($path -ne $null)
			{
				Copy-Item $dir2copy $path -recurse
			
				break;
			}
		}
    } 
}
