Could you check in the lists of all search paths if you have accidently added those subfolders? You can check it using the 'Set path' dialogue box. Find it in the Home tab, in the Environment section.
Using the same dialogue box you can add or remove the folders you want.

Okay, so the way it works is that it checks all the paths for the file specified in load command. If the file is not found, then only it gives an error, which is expected behaviour. Here, in this case it also gives a suggestion along with that error.

I still don't understand what you want to acheive. Do you want to suppress the error?

I want to compare mat.file from subfolder 001 with mat.file from subfolder 003.
All subfolders are in one same folder.
I would prefer to write in a code:
load data x from folder 001
load data y from folder 003
compare x and y
