Changing Part Sizes?

Currently I have a model of a bridge crane in an assembly with around 8 sub assemblies, each containing 20+ parts. I have one version of this saved and in use for another project. I want to modify this assembly (essentially just increasing some of the sizes) without affecting the one for the old project.

 

The issue I am having is that I do not want to have to go through and make new configurations for every part and then alter the new configuration lengths. Conveniently, the last person to create this assembly put all the parts in a folder with hundreds of other parts not included in this assembly. Otherwise, I would've just saved a copy of all the parts and referenced that.

 

Is there any way, from inside the assembly, to save a copy of all parts to a new reference location? Or a way to make a new configuration of every part of the assembly without making a new configuration inside each of the parts?
