    I ran across this workaround...though, it doesn't keep you from having to do it every time someone else collaborates outside your local network, it does make it much easier to deal with.
    Im my situation, im simply resyncing BOX drive files to a new computer, so i've only got to do it once.

    I'm not entirely sure how up-to-date this is, but...
    Dr Scripto has two APPLESCRIPTS for this very issue...yes, they cost..but minimal. And as you guessed, only work on macs.
    They were posted in 2017, but a recent comment from march 2020 says its worked great.
    Ive used a few scripts from Dr Scripto and they are bomber.

    https://www.drscripto.com/indesign-image-relinker/

    The first is for BOX, DROPBOX shared type scenarios where you only need to replace the initial part of the path string.
    The second is for the more complex scenarios where it will replace any root path and search every folder on that drive/server for the missing links and update the path and index accordingly.

    All of this is speculative, I haven't used it yet...but ran across this post searching myself.
