Restructured vault, need to fix broken references

I restructured folders in our vault and now whenever we open an assembly, we get prompted with the "browse for missing part" dialog for every part.  This is a huge productivity killer and I need to fix it somehow.

 

All I did was cut/paste files from one folder to another within the PDM explorer window.  The files were all (100%) checked-in (we just did a migration to a new server and updated from EPDM 2015 to PDM Pro 2018).  I thought the beauty of PDM was that is was supposed to automatically update references when you moved files this way?

 

Is there any way to quickly update references for the thousands of parts I've now broken?

I basically just want to change the reference path from Vault/FolderA/FolderB  to  Vault/FolderC

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks!

Steve
