HowToFix: Relocating documents to another file server brakes absolute links
Posted on 2007-07-30
I am in a process of moving home directories for Windows users from aging MS 2K box to OpenFiler (samba). "My Documents" folder for every user is mounted on the server (\\server\users\jowsmith). As you can imagine, some documents have absolute links (images, spreadsheets, etc) to object on the server, for instance \\server\users\joesmith\budget\2005image.jpg. After migrating to a new server, all links will be broken. Any recipe to fix it in batch mode?
