Searching Enterprise PDM Vault

I think I've asked this question before, but it was not possible in older versions of Enterprise PDM. I'm hoping it can be done in 2009.


We have a number of old assemblies that reference parts on peoples hard drives from when we were working outside of the PDM vault. When we moved to PDM these assemblies were brought into the vault along with the references to the C:\ directories. So now when we open an assembly we are prompted for 100's of files that cannot be found. These files are in the vault and our vault is set to not allow duplicate files names. The biggest problem we have is the vault has 100's of subdirectories, reestablishing the links can take hours.


Is there anyway to set a search path to search the entire vault to look for the missing files?
