(I changed "Box Sync" to "Box_Sync" in your example to prevent line wrap)

Hello Leonard,

I have set Configuration Option CO-5X
Alt-Copy, Move and Mirror - X Default path mode to 'Current'.
With this setting, ZTree works the clearest (in _my opinion at least):

- Position Source Pane on D:\Users\Box_Sync\
- and Destination Pane on C:\Users\Public\Documents\

Both methods, Alt-Copy and Alt-Mirror, now offer you
to copy the 'source branch' (Box_Sync) to the Destination directory (Documents),
which includes the creation of the Source Branch Root Directory (Box_Sync) with no extra prompt.

Also, the 2nd prompt in the Alt-Copy / Alt-Mirror commands is now very clear:
(here a copy/paste of first and second prompt)

MIRROR: Duplicate Branch & COPY logged files
To: C:\Users\Public\Documents

MIRROR: Duplicate Branch & COPY logged files
To: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Box_Sync\*.*
Source: Paths are (current) Full Curr Rel ◄─┘ OK

NOTE: Don't forget to fully log the Source Branch.
If part of the branch is unlogged, Alt-Mirror silently creates EMPTY target directories
for each unlogged source directory, and you may not be aware of it afterwards...
