We, as an IT department of a large MFG site, moved thousands of files from one server to another using a different path. This software did what it promised: replacing the links in the Office documents very fast. It was great that this migration went without too much problems for the business.
We used Link Repair to replace invalid fileserver- with new DFS-paths mentioned in over thousand hyperlinks in hundreds of (Word-) files. After some teething troubles - macro-error for every document, we needed a user in an OU without GPO - the software finally did, what it should. 🙂
The software works fine !! The support help us, and the trial-version do good job.
My organization had a project that involved partitioning out a 500 GB drive full of various inter-linked office files into "business critical" and "non-business-critical" drives. I purchased Link Repair V3 to support this effort. Link Repair allowed us to update hyperlinks in thousands of various files, including those in sub-folders. The application is straight forward and easy to use. I really liked that I was able to modify the update rules in XML format, as that allowed me to make additional complex rules based on where the files moved and where the new hyperlinks pointed to. Technical support has also been very helpful in addressing my questions and even adding in requested functionality. Link Repair is also very competitively priced against similar products. One limitation of this application is that (to my knowledge), it will only change hyperlinks in documents, and not the associated human readable text. So if your hyperlink shows a file path, the link will update but it may appear to not have changed, which can cause some confusion to end users. Overall though, I would definitely recommend Link Repair.
After our IT department installed the new server, none of the links in any of the documents (which we created over the last six years!) were working. I found that the people from Vantage Softech had developed this unique solution. I installed it, and within a a few hours I had all links sorted. Just a simple yet very clever solution. Thank you Vantage.
