  If you are using a pc, there is a program called "everything" (I think it is free: do a Google Search).  It works in the background and records the name of every file on the main drive of your PC (I am unsure if it can explore external drives).  Once it has initially scanned all your files, (takes a few minutes), all you have to do then is to look for *.do and every file, with its full location is listed.  It is very fast.  Great for looking for bits of file names.  I suggest finding it using a Google search for Everything.  (I used to use a PC but now use a MAC which does things differently).

Hope this helps.

I may replicate this for .dta files so that I can tie them together.
