Copying linked file names

How do I copy the name of the linked file?  I have dozens of missing links and need to search my hd to find them.  The files names are long and there would be countless hours wasted trying to make sure each one I searched for was correct.

 

I've tried in every window I can find, but it won't let me select the text, anywhere.  Very frustrating, to say the least.

 

Thanks

go to File->File Info...to bring up the XMP window, then on the list on the left select Raw Data. Then search for a file name. You will only get the first match and you won't be able to find a next match. But you can copy and paste the whole xml data and paste it into a text editor for better search tools.

you could also Ctrl+A to select all, open the "Document Info" Panel, switch to "Linked Images" in the Flyout Menu, then click on "Save..." to save the list to a text file.

It is not very elegant, but you can go to the Document Info panel, uncheck selection only and save it as a text file.
