We have a book comprised of a dozen different ID docs. The support (links) for all docs have been moved to an internal drive. it is a painstaking process to relink manually in each doc. Is there a more efficient and global way to do this?
Have you gone into the Links panel menu (at the top right of the panel) and tried Relink to Folder? You'll have to do it for each file, but at least it may help speed things up a bit.
Also keep in mind that if the InDesign file and linked files are in the same folder you don't have to relink when moving files around. If you keep links in a subfolder it's harder to manage. For this reason I keep the InDesign file and all links in the same folder. I name the InDesign file starting with a space or ! to keep it at the top of the list and easy to find.
