    Okay, so it's kind of an odd question, and i'm not expecting an extremely helpful solution, but here goes.

    Basically, i'd like to select '.m4a''s and ONLY '.m4a' files within folders.

    :+Main folder
    : : +Folder 1
    : : : random file.file
    : : : random file.file
    : : : song.m4a
    : : +Folder 2
    : : : random file.file
    : : : random file.file
    : : : song.m4a
    : : -Folder 3
    : : -Folder 4
    : : -Folder 5
    etc.
    (ignore the colons ':', just for spacing)

    i simply would like to extract ONLY the .m4a's i was thinking maybe through zipping it into an archive and extracting it a special way?
    lol

    the reason i need this is because there are A LOT of folders!

    not saying what it's for, i'll check with a mod first.
    lol

    Do a search for ".m4a" inside folder "Main folder" and it will give you a list of all .m4a's inside the folder and subfolders.

    See picture 1 then 2
