Our IT Dept has copied all of our files to a new network share. The files in the original location were still accessible. Since many employees did not update their shortcuts, they wound up maintaining the files in the original location. Others, of course, are maintaining files in the new location.
I found a shareware utility that will synchronize the files across two locations (http://www.alwaysync.org
), which is working just great.
The other problem is: How can I update the shortcuts on each employee's PC to ensure that they are pointing to the correct network share?
Here is an example:
"Y" drive letter mapped to Original location: //nfs1/dept/hr/hris
needs to be updated to map to New location: //ad.companyname.com/nfs1/
Somehow I need to update each mapped drive letter by inserting "//ad.companyname.com/" in place of the leading "//". Is it possible to create a script to do this that each individual can run on their own?
