Move Profile Subfolders to new location

We have a profile repository D:\Profiles\*username*

Is it possible to script the MOVE of two partiuclar folders under the above directory to a new location using the same *username* parent folder?

Example

D:\Profiles\jsmith\Downloads              MOVE TO                           D:\Profiles_Old\jsmith\Downloads

Having to do this for over 400 profiles, so automation and keeping the target folder under a parent folder with the username would be great

This should do the trick; it's in test mode and will only report what it would do.
Remove the uppercase ECHOs in lines 12 and 14 to run it for real.
@echo off
setlocal
set Source=D:\Profiles
set Target=D:\Profiles_Old
set FolderList=Downloads Foo
for /d %%a in ("%Source%\*") do (
	echo Processing %%~nxa ...
	for %%f in (%FolderList%) do (
		echo   - %%~f ...
		if exist "%%a\%%~f" (
			if not exist "%Target%\%%~nxa" (
				ECHO md "%Target%\%%~nxa"
			)
			ECHO move "%%a\%%~f" "%Target%\%%~nxa"
		) else (
			echo     ... not found.
		)
	)
)
