Finding Parts in the Vault

We have a few assemblies that have been created outside of our Enterprise vault. I these cases the assemblies reference several parts that reside inside our vault, but because the assembly was created outside the vault these file were copied to a network directory and references copies location not the vault files.

We have checked in the top level file and deleted the copies of the duplicate files. So now when we open the assembly we get a number of errors locateing files. Example below:

Unable to locate the file C:\PDME_Vault\Engineering Data\TP\Mechanical\900315.SLDPRT. Would you like to find it yourself?

The way we are doing it now is manualy clicking through the vault directories and finding the files when we open the assembly.

Our vault is setup to not allow duplicate file names. Is there a way to automatically search the vault for the 'missing' files. The vault doesn't allow duplicate file names, so there will be only one 900315.SLDPRT.
