How to resolve drawing external references?

Hello,

 

how to force SolidWorks external filename "resolution" to look first in local and later in a network share?

 

I save files on a network path ex. \\srv\root

 

Example

\\srv\root\a,slddrw

\\srv\root\a,sldprt

 

I make a local copy in c:\workingfolder

c:\wrk\a.slddrw

c:\wrk\a.sldprt

 

In File/Open/REferences I see

c:\wrk\a.slddrw

c:\wrk\a.sldprt

 

But when I open the drawing, in File/References

c:\wrk\a.slddrw, point to  \\srv\root\a,sldprt

instead od c:\wrk\a.sldprt

 

Thanks in advance for any info.

Best Regards
