Question Search through subfolders and move them into separate folder on the base of file size

Hello guys
I am sure that you will help me on this issue as you did earlier:Smilie
Scenario :
I have a folder named "XYZ". It consist many sub-folders and subfolder contain severals files. there may be abc.dat in each subfolder. Now i want to seperate subfolders on follwing conditions-
if abc.dat > 1kb (size) move all subfolders to folder healthy
if abc.dat <=1kb move all subfolders to folder unhealty
if there is no abc.dat move all subfolders to folder others.
So at the end we have 3 sub-folders named healthy, unhealty and others containing subfolders with differnt condition.

Please write a shell script for this .
Thanks in advance.

do your own work. Show some effort.. what have you got ? if you are lost, here's a hint. you can use the find command with its options to find size, etc. check the man page. read the documentation.
