Batch change the drive letter referenced in a ArcMap 9.1 Document (mxd)
Posted on 2006-11-28
Hello, thanks in advance for your help
I want to copy over all the files we use at the firm I work from the server onto my local drive on my laptop so I can carry them with me and work at home.
The maps and shapefiles are stored in a windows file system (as opposed to a GDB). My plan just to copy the entire top level directory onto my C drive. Except for the rasters which I plan to burn to a DVD with the same file path that they are in on the server.
My question: Is there a way to batch change the drive reference used in the maps. Meaning if there is a map using a shape file stored in P:\GIS\Shapefiles\shapefile_x.shp is there a way to change the drive letter to C: w/o opening the map and doing it manually (there are hundreds of preexisting maps)..
