I used the function movefile (MATLAB 2018a). My file name is stored in the variable filename.
I run the lines
as a result MATLAB copied some files into that folder... the problem is: that is not a folder but still a file!
due to a typo in the second command (missing underscore), MATLAB created a new file (instead of using the folder name I previously created) and copied some files into it (I can see the size of the file/folder). I tried to change the attributes of the file (to make it into a folder) but I can't, I also tried to open it with explorer or winrar but it does not work. Is there a way to solve this without losing the files ? I have already tried to copy those files out of the fake folder but MATLAB tells me it can't find the file names
