After program download, winIDEA will attempt to locate sources for modules reported in the download file.
•first it will try to match the module name to a project file listed in the project list. If no match is found then the module name remains unchanged.
•if no source file exists in the established directory, winIDEA will scan all listed directories (in order of specification) for an occurrence of this file.
•if no match is found for the module, no source debugging is available for it.

If this option is checked, winIDEA automatically converts paths defined. The conversion is defined in the format:
<original path specified in the download file>=<path as seen from the current workstation>
Multiple path conversion paths can be specified and separated by a comma (,) or semicolon (;).

The option defines which source files take priority – from the path of the project file list or the download file path.
