Moving lots of files to the vault

Hi all,

 

I need to move thousands of files that currently live on a network location outside of a vault to a newly created vault. This includes assemblies, sub assemblies, parts, drawings, libraries, etc. The trouble I am having is that once moved to the vault, the parent files keep their references to the comprising parts that are outside of the vault, not the ones I copied across to it.

 

It is impossible to update references manually for each assembly because we have thousands of them (not really impossible, but it would take a ridiculous amount of time).

 

Can someone give me any suggestions on how to achieve this?

 

Many thanks!
