basically i want him to check if there is folders with this name and then copy my file into them
but not only into them
my file need to be in a subfolder

so powershell should check for folders with that name to then copy my file into the template subfolder of those he found.

You can use this script to check the folder and overwrite the existing file if present.

$sourcefile = 'c:\test\file.txt'
$destinationroot = Get-ChildItem -Path c:\org.xmind.ui.resources_* -Directory

If (Test-Path -Path $destinationroot) 
	$destinationfolder = "$destinationroot\templates\myfile"

	Copy-Item -Path $sourcefile -Destination $destinationfolder -Force

good luck,
