Direct Links for files on Box Drive
We have Excel files that reference each other that we moved from local drives to Box Drive. The links change to whatever box folder we move them to, but the path is listed as "C:\users\username\filename"... etc. We need these links to reference the actual Box URL so that other people who have access to the file can still get the updated reference.
The Box Drive folder can now be placed in a ‘general’ location outside of C:\users\username. This should resolve your issue. More information can be found here: https://community.box.com/t5/Deploying-Managing-Box-Drive/Configuring-the-Default-Box-Drive-Folder-Location/ta-p/66248

Yes, you have the ability to tell Box Drive which folder you want Box Drive Cache and Mark For Offline folders now. If you all create the same directory path, it could solve this issue. This is working for us in a MAC-MAC or WINDOWS-WINDOWS situation MAC-WINDOWS-MAC is untested.

I believe the most recent version of Box Drive resolved this issue.

We to are unable to migrate our finance department because of this issue. This is preventing us from moving 100% to Box
