Hello, 

 

I am completely new here, so please forgive me any silly questions. 

 

I've been tasked to copy all my user's images from one server to a new location/share. The problem is that user's images are linked to the old server \\Server1 and they have to change the image links to \\Server2. 

 

They use Adobe Cloud and inDesign. When I look at where the images are stored there doesn't seem to be like a configuraiton file that I could edit. The users asked me to switch the old server of, so they can locate the images and edit them to put in the new \\Server2 location. 

 

We've transfered about 500GB of data/images and it's going to take users ages to do this. 

 

Is there any way of changing a global setting or doing and export/import to do this?

 

Thanks, 

Richard

I am not sure, I think I found the answer:

Hi Richard,

you can also see into a script by Kasyan Servetsky:

http://kasyan.ho.ua/scripts_by_categories.html

 

Look into category "Link".

Perhaps the following scripts would fit your needs:

 

Update links to new drive letters (ID for Windows) by Kasyan
This script changes the drive letter in the path names, has an option to relink all or only missing links.

Restore broken links after server migration in InDesign (ID) by Kasyan
restores broken links by replacing the part of the path that changed.

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
