For helping find the problem:
dinfo = dir('*Q*');
Qnames = {dinfo.name};
for K = 1 : length(Qnames)
QN = Qnames{K};
fprintf('Found name |%s| which is length %d\n. Its character codes are: ', QN, length(QN));
disp(double(QN));
end
That is, I hypothesize that you have an invisible character as part of the directory name, such as a space at the end.

To find the right path, run without
addpath('xyz')
And then to find what you are looking from that path, matlab will recommend you how to add the path for missing information.

MATLAB will not generally recommend how to find the path. It does in some cases, but it is never clear what algorithm it is using to make the suggestions.
