Sounds like you want natural order sorting. There are some File Exchange submissions that do this (example). But if the format you shared is consistent across all paths, it would also be easy to use regular expressions to extract the ending numeric values and then sort those values.
This would have been easier to demonstrate if the paths were provided as text rather than a screenshot.
str = 'C:\Users\me\folderOne\folder2\docs\Data 11';
nstr = regexp(str,'\d+$','match','once');
n = str2double(nstr)
[~, sortidx] = sort(n)
Then use sortidx to sort whatever you're sorting.
