Our company recently upgraded our engineering server.

Before the upgrade, all workstations had their own wip folders located on their local C: drive.

Which was not being back-up daily to the server.

Now after the upgrade,our wip are now on the H: drive. Which is now back-up daily.


The problem we are experiencing now....


When trying to open a surfcam(scprt) file, we recieve an alarm.

the alarm reads as follows:



Original File:

C:\pdmwip\(file name).sldprt

is not found in its original location!


There is three option boxes to choose from.

Browse, Postpone, Disable.


If i choose postpone, i can work with the file but any changes to the sldprt file does not affect the surfcam file.(no updates)

If i choose browse, open the sldprt associated with the surfcam file, i then recieve a warning that the part has been updated, followed by a warning that no change has been detected. at this point, i need to save the file(even though no changes were made) to re-establish the link to the H: drive. which in-turn changes the status in the wip folder from = sign togreen arrow. meaning i need to re-check it back into the vault. even though there hasn't been any changes made. but will bump revision level.


Is there a way to re-establish the link of the files in the vault to our H: directory without having to check-out all files and re-check back in?
