Is there somewhere a component or an object pascal exemple, which helps
me to walk down a folder structure recursively? I would like to notice
each filename and foldername (inc. date) found in this structure for later usage.

Any hint is welcome !

Yo,
create a recursive function in your main function that adds e.g. the complete path with filename to a list.
A quick flow-example without syntax warranty:

procedure RecurseDirs(Dir : string; List : TStringList);
 procedure Recurse(ADir : string);
 begin
   ( FindFirst/FindNext loop stuff )
   ( check if file is a directory )
   ( if yes, call Recurse(ADir + '\DirName') )
   ( if no, add file to list )
   ( end of loop )
 end;
begin
  Recurse(Dir);
end;
