I am trying to copy files in different subfolders with wildcards. I have tried two different ways but no luck. Any ideas? thanks

Get-ChildItem -Path "C:\database\Combine" -include "*TOTAL.*" -Recurse | Copy-Item -Destination "C:\database\Combine\TOTAL" 
---------------------------------------------------------------- Copy-Item -Path "C:\database\Combine\*TOTAL.*" -Destination "C:\database\Combine\TOTAL" -recurse -Force -Verbose
