    Hi Pete, 

    Welcome to the Box Community!

    Have you checked out this support article on Configuring the Default Box Drive Folder Location?
    We are enhancing support for linked files with the ability to choose where the Box Drive folder lives on your users' desktops.  With this enhancement, you'll be able to choose a general location for Box Drive that's outside of the user space, so anyone who wants to access the file with the links can do so seamlessly.  When you link files in Box Drive, the folder path a program (such as Excel or PowerPoint) stores will be consistent for all of your users. 
    This may be relevant to your problem with the next steps!
    If this did not help, do you mind providing more information or even share a screenshot? This will help out other members of the community to answer your question.
