I'm still struggling to wrap my brain around a massive copy operation, my old computer to the new one. Here's what the two files look like now, and what I want them to look like after the copy. Basically, going from the old Box Sync directory to the new one.

Destination directory
C:\Users\Public\Documents\Box Sync\

Source directory
"D:\Users\Box Sync\Photos\Judy\Jewelry\GoldChainEnlargedIMG_0848.jpg"
"D:\Users\Box Sync\Photos\Judy\Jewelry\IMG_0902.JPG"

After copy, files should look like (sorry for the premature wrap)
C:\Users\Public\Documents\Box Sync\Photos\Judy\Jewelry\GoldChainEnlargedIMG_0848.jpg
C:\Users\Public\Documents\Box Sync\IMG_0902.JPG
