Advice on part/assembly root directory change

Hi there, I'm looking for advice on making a root directory change.

 

Up until a short while ago, I kept all SW data (.sldprt, .sldasm) files between the local paths:

 

C:/<directory A>/<directory B>/hwlib (.sldprt, .sldasm)

C:/<directory A>/<directory B>/dwlib (design library items)

C:/<directory A>/<directory B>/symlib (2D schematic symbols)

 

These directories were automatically backed up to cloud storage using an application/service called Seafile.  My workstation recently died.  I'm currently in the process of restoring these directories on a refurbished machine.  I would like to pull the directories hwlib, dlib and symlib down from cloud storage, synchronizing to the locations:

 

C:/hwlib

C:/dwlib

C:/symlib

 

I'd like to avoid any issues such as having to manually point to every part file referenced in an assembly following the migration, on opening an existing assembly for the first time.  Can anyone give me any advice on best practices for restoring my files?  I'm not entirely familiar with any built-in functionality of SW for handling data e.g. vault, however, I suspect that someone may bring this to my attention.  I'm looking for a quick fix in the interim, certainly open to exploring better practices longer term.

 

My apologies if I am not posting this question to the best possible location.
