Hi all, i know this has been asked a lot but i cannot find anything for my specific scenario. I have a Windows file share with 1,691 folders, these folders contain numerous subfolders. What i want is to scan each top folder and check for subfolders named A, B and C, if these exist, i then want to go into each of them and create a folder called NEW. What i should end up with is

Folder1 > A > 2018
Folder1 > B > 2018
Folder1 > C > 2018

Folder1 may also contain subfolders D, E and F but i don't want anything to happen to these. Also, Folder1 may only contain subfolder B, if that is the case I do want the 2018 folder to be created.

As i said, i have 1691 folders to scan and they could each contain 3 folders that i need to create a subfolder for so all in all a possible 5073 folder creations. I'd rather not do this manually.
