    Should you instruct vBulletin to store attachments in the file system, it will put them in multiple directories. vBulletin stores attachments as in a directory tree like attachments/1/2/3/4. The numbers are the digits in a user's userid.

            According to our IMPEX manual: (https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/impex)

            The following parts of phpbb3 will be imported:
            • Import usergroup
            • Import user
            • Import forum
            • Import thread
            • Import smilie
            • Import post
            • Import Private messages
            • Import attachment
            • Import moderator


            I really don't know about attachment captions- I would suspect not as vBulletin doesn't have an equivalent feature to import them into.

            Also note that passwords do not get imported- users will need to reset their password from the "forgot password" link after the import.
