Box: Transitioning from Fileshares such as H, I, J, L


1. Navigate to the fileshare (for instance,  H Drive)

2. Press Ctrl-A to select all content

3. Copy the folders selected: use the Ctrl-C keyboard combination  or right click and select copy (see screenshot below)

Shows copying from H Drive

3. Open another window for Box Drive using Windows Explorer or Mac Finder and navigate to the desired folder. If you're moving H drive files, you may want to name this folder "Personal" or "Folders I own."

4. Paste into the Box Drive folder: use the Ctrl-V keyboard combination or right click and select paste (see screenshot below) .

Shows pasting into Boxdrive.

Note: Dragging and dropping directly from a fileshare to Box Drive also works.
