Pack and Go, Save to Folder Select and Replace Crashes Solidworks

I am trying to pack and go an assembly to a new location, but keep part of the tree structure.

 

For example:

 

The current location of the assembly is: I:\Projects\Company1\15000\Design Mechanical\Packer\(Different Folders Inside that)

 

I want it to end up in: I:\Projects\Company2\16000\Design Mechanical\Packer\(Different Folders Inside that)

 

What it goes to it:

 

I:\Projects\Company2\16000\Design Mechanical\Packer\(Different Folders Inside that)\Projects\Company1\15000\Design Mechanical\Packer\(Different Folders Inside that)

 

Basically it puts the entire tree structure inside the new job folder.

 

So I have tried to do a select and replace the "Projects\Company1\15000\Design Mechanical\Packer\" with nothing and it crashes my solidworks every time. I have tried many different ways, such as replacing it with one word, replacing it with another string of folders. The only thing that wont crash is if I dont have backslashes in there, but then it replaces some of the folders I don't want replaced. It seems that the "\" is crashing solidworks.

 

Has anyone ever ran into this problem before?

 

Thanks!
