Search through folders and subfolders to collect data saved as a certain name

2 views (last 30 days)
I've read documentation on different sectionf of this problem but I don't quite understand how to structure the script to search through dubfolders to pull out a .mat saved under a certain name "Data01.mat", "Data02.mat". I'll be taking this script to also save in the same folder with a slightly different name as well.

Using dir with a double asterisk should do the trick. Do you want to find all mat files in your folders?

Im looking to pull specific ones but they're spread out between different folders within a folder. Unsure on how to search through those different levels of folders all at the same time.
