We maintain an independent library of referenced materials for our designs, things such as specialty nuts & bolts, casters, Pems, etc. We had a designer who got in the habit of keeping his own referenced materials library in a folder on his computer. Now I'm tasked with moving all of his files to our network library. As it stands, it's taking a very long time to select parts one-at-a-time, let SolidWorks Explorer search for components that reference it, then move it. I've already told SolidWorks Explorer to narrow it's search to a few specific folders, but there's still a lot of files in those folders to search. I don't mind it taking a while to do it's search, but I'd really like if I could have SolidWorks searching for several parts at a time so I don't waste so much time monitoring that computer for progress while I try to get my own work done. If there is no clear way, I may end up just doing what I can before the new designer starts next Monday, then just cut and paste everything that's left and have him re-establish links as he needs them.
Thanks in advance for any help!
