Step 1: Method 1: Using Command-line
Open a Command Prompt window. Use the following command-line example.
cd /d 'd:vacation snaps2016'
for /r %d in (*) do copy '%d' 'd:all snaps'
This recursively copies all files in the “vacation snaps2016” folder to the “All Snaps” folder.
Step 2: Method 2: Using Windows Search (GUI)
Open the parent folder (the top-level folder) which contains multiple-sub-folders.
From the File menu, click Options. Click the View tab
Step 3: In the Search box
In the Search box type the following search query, exactly as below:
*.* NOT kind:=Folder
Step 3 is only needed if you are trying to copy hidden and/or system files and folders. Otherwise, it's unnecessary and makes it that much easier to accidentally delete important files later on.
Step 4: Just make sure that All subfolders option is enabled
Just make sure that All subfolders option is enabled. It starts searching for files in all sub-folders and recursively, listing them all including the ones with System or Hidden (or both) attributes. We use the “NOT” operator to prevent Windows search from listing sub-folders — as we’re only going to copy or move all the files in sub-folders, and not the folders themselves.
Wait until the search is completed, and then select all files in the search results, by pressing CTRL + A.
Step 5: Home tab choose location
In the Home tab, and click the Copy To button. If you want to move the files instead of copying, click the Move to button, and click Choose location… Ashtanga second series.
Step 6: In the Move Items dialog,
In the Move Items dialog, select the folder where you want to move all the files. To create a new folder, click Make New Folder button and assign the folder name accordingly. Once selected the folder, click Move.

Change the source and destination path and it will move not copy the files in the folders to the destination
Step 8: subfolder files move
save as .bat
this will move all the files in the subfolders to one folder

Important: Windows Search may not list every file in search results in some cases, either due to indexing issues or if “Temporary” attributes is set for a file. First, it’s prudent to make sure that there are no files left behind at the source location, before clearing out those folders.
