Default which folders to copy when working w/ 2 pc's

ive been using maya on my home pc and want to copy my project to a pc at work. what files do i need to copy?

ive copied the project folder and it seems to work fine except for the image planes. no image is shown on the planes i created.

the actual folder ive copied is:

my documents>maya>projects>New_Project

should i be copying something else as well?

You might need to update the links for the source images as the folder structure might be different from your work PC to you home PC.

yeah, that's what it was. i ended up opening the hypershade again and reloading the image planes. wasnt as hard as i thought it would be.

is there a way to not have to do this every time? originally, i had the images located on my desktop. is there a folder i should be placing them that would solve this?

oh yeah, when i did copy the project folder to the second pc, i just copied it to my desktop.
