Can I efficiently batch repair hundreds of reference links in our projects?

Dear all

 

Management last week decided to rename the main folder where all our parts and many assemblies are stored. These are literally thousands of parts, that are used in thousands of assemblies. The change in itself is quite minimal, but has profound effects, as you can imagine.

 

Is there a way to batch replace all reference links and simply change that one folder name in the link everywhere? Something like a search&replace command in Office.

 

PS: All our parts are stored in different subfolders within subfolders within subfolders, so every link is unique. I just  want an efficient way to rename the main folder name in every reference.

PS²: The renaming of the main folder has already occurred. We can't go back.

 

Best regards

Kasper
