This might be impossible, but I thought I'd ask. I work for a company that has been using a shared network drive with a folder of image assets and another with logos, etc, but we've now grown to where it's become necessary to use a DAM for better organization. We have a few years of project files (mostly inDesign) that have images and logos linked to the network drive location. If we move all the assets to a new location it means all the files have old links that would now be broken for any file we'd open. Aside from just manually updating these, is there any way at all to somehow mass update links of multiple files so anywhere it finds "Path X" it would update it to "Path Y"?

 

Seems impossible, but sometimes I'm surprised by what you find...

 

Thanks in advance.
