file organization

I am using SW 2012.

Deciding on file organization has been rather difficult as I am new to both the software and projects that have many parts.

Right now I have an assembly that has many subassemblies that have many parts, some parts repeated in different subassemblies.

To keep track of this project and the BOMs the parts need to stay with the subassemblies.

After having made many subassemblies and organizing parts for each into separate files, I have a need to reorganize these assemblies into different folder divisions sometimes merging one assembly with another and doing things like having the parts into a new file.  I did not realize that moving the parts would result in an assembly being unable to find the part placed in it. I have resorted to resaving each part of an assembly into a different folder or directory ... is there a way to do this enmass instead of each part one at a time?

Are there other suggestions for file transport and management?
