Just take off the "Flatten to single folder" tick mark.
It is really bad to have the drawings in another folder, because then you can not rmc to open a drawing.
No you don´t have to re-path anything. Second Question, yes they will.

First question.. Do I have to individually re-path each part, assembly, and drawing to the newly created file folder locations?
I haven't ever used Pack and Go to place parts in different folders, but if that's what you want to do I'd suggest setting the default to the Parts folder, since I assume that's where you'll have the majority of the files. (See screenshot below.) Then you could individually set the file paths for the assemblies and drawings.
Second question..Will my assemblies, drawings, parts automatically "re-path" to their new locations once moved/re-named?
As I said above, when using Pack and Go I always moved everything into a single folder, but yes, all files created with Pack and Go should have the proper references, and you shouldn't have any references to the original files.
By the way, when I first started using SW I had a very similar folder structure. I have since changed to having all files for a single project in a single folder, with no sub-folders. It works pretty well.
I'm going to start keeping all files for a project in a single folder. Seems to be the best way...
I have a folder structure works fine.
Only things that you have to bear in mind regarding drawings in general if you want to open them by rmc part/assembly in a model.
- They have to have the same file name as dependent part/assembly
- They need to be in the same folder as part/assembly
That's good to know... Helpful
