    SOLUTION FOUND

    It worked for me to move the cache folder and then create create a symbolic link to it. (symbolic link, NOT a shortcut).

    1) Close Box drive
    2) Move the cache folder (go to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Box\Box and move the 'cache' folder to your new location. I recommend you back up the current cache folder temporarily.)
    3) Create the symbolic link (Open command prompt as an administrator and then use the mklink command to make a link named 'cache' pointing to the new location - for example, mklink /D "C:\Users\<insert user root folder name>\AppData\Local\Box\Box\cache" "D:\<insert new cache folder name>"
    4) Restart Box.

    This was the first page I got to when I searched for a solution on Google, so hopefully my answer is helpful to someone. It looks like someone before me already had the same idea. I recommend Box create an article explaining how to do this since it works (easer to do that than add the feature to the program, I suspect).
