How To Copy Files Without Messing Up References

I cannot understand why it is so difficult to copy/move files with Solidworks. Every time I try and do this some sort of reference is messed up and then difficult to fix and lots of the time it tries to reference the location you copied from and then messes up those files...

 

Pack and go works decently but you either get no folder structure or way too much folder structure and you also lose all your pdfs, dxfs, non assembled parts etc.

 

Someone has to have figured out a way to copy a project and paste it somewhere else without messing up references etc, hopefully someone can enlighten me on how to do this because it is driving me nuts.
