Enterprise PDM External References

I have an assembly that currently has about 20 parts in it. They are located on a server drive currently and i want to check them into EPDM. Now i copy the parts to their respective locations in the vault, 3-4 folders, depending on their certain things. I check in all the part files first. I then try to check in the assembly file and it tells me all the references are "Outside SolidWorks Enterprise PDM". Is it me or shouldn't EPDM know that it has those file names in the vault? Or do i have to go through SolidWorks Explorer and change each reference piece by piece?
