What your folders' configuration looks like? Is this: <pre>
+- Folder B
| +- File 1
| +- File 2
+- Folder C
| +- File 3
| +- File 4
+- Folder D
. . . . . . .
</pre>, and you need File 1, File 4, etc "in Folder A\My new folder\"?
Then I think this commands would be of help:
md "My new folder"
for /D %i in (*) do move "%i\*" ".\My New Folder"
