Hi,

I need to find the missing links in the server if anything present with the same image name.

Step 1: Get the missing link name

Step 2: Choose the main folder (for now i used Test_Images) to search the image. We need to search in the subfolders too

Step 3: Copy the found image to Recovered Missing Link folder (created a folder where active document )

I got some help useful threads in the forum (Re: need to relink missing links to files with extensions ). Thank you [Jongware] .But those are useful to link the images. I need to collect the images and copy in a particular folder.

The below coding not copy the images.

var i, j, searchfolder, movefolder=[]; 

for (j=0; j<app.documents.length; j++) { 

    doc = app.documents

 

    imgs = doc.links; 

    path = doc.filePath; 

 

    searchfolder = searchfolder || new Folder(path); 

    searchfolder = searchfolder.selectDlg( 

    "Find a path to "+doc.name+"'s images. Should contain "+ 

        imgs[0].name+".*"); 

 

    for (i=0; i<imgs.length; i++) 

    { 

        if (imgs.status == LinkStatus.LINK_MISSING) 

        { 

            imglist = findAnyFileDownThere(imgs.name, searchfolder); 

            if (imglist.length == 1) 

            { 

    

                    movefolder.push( Folder(path + "/Recovered Missing Link/").getFiles() );

            } 

        } 

    } 

function findAnyFileDownThere (filename, path) 

var result, folderList, fl; 

result = Folder(path).getFiles (filename+".*"); 

if (result.length > 0) 

  return result; 

folderList = Folder(path).getFiles(function(item) { return item instanceof Folder && !item.hidden; }); 

 

for (fl=0; fl<folderList.length; fl++) 

  result = findAnyFileDownThere (filename, path+"/"+folderList[fl].name); 

  if (result.length > 0) 

   return result; 

return []; 

Please help to solve this.

Advance thanks,

K

...and to relink - method Link.relink()

var

  i, j,

  doc, imgs, path, cName, cFile,

  imglist, searchfolder, movefolder;  

for (j=0; j<app.documents.length; j++) {  

    doc = app.documents;

        imgs[0].name+".*");  

  

    for (i=0; i<imgs.length; i++)  

    {  

        if (imgs.status == LinkStatus.LINK_MISSING)  

        {  

            cName = imgs.name;

            imglist = findAnyFileDownThere(cName, searchfolder);  

            if (imglist.length == 1)  

            {  

                 movefolder = Folder(path + "/Recovered Missing Link");

                 if (!movefolder.exists) movefolder.create();

                 cName = imglist[0].name;

                 cFile = File(movefolder + "/"+ cName);

                 if (!cFile.exists) imglist[0].copy(cFile);

                 imgs.relink(cFile);

            }  

        }  

    }  

}  

function findAnyFileDownThere (filename, path)
