"File Not Found" Assy references - where does SW think it should be

I'm running into a problem with a big messy assembly that's stored on a network drive.

 

When I am querying File > Find References, it lists 5200 parts, coming from 21 different locations.

My biggest headache: there are 1445 "File Not Found."

 

Is there any way I can get more information as to where SW thinks those files should have been?

 

If it wants to look in existing directories, and the files are not there, that's one thing.

If it wants to look in non-existing directories (say on somebody's personal harddrive it can't access),

that's a different thing, because those files may be there.

 

Is there any way to get more information "in bulk" out of the assembly with regards to the unsuccessful references?

 

Thank You.

 

Mike

 

PS: I had nothing to do with this assembly being created.

I'm just doing the cleanup.
