Hi, I have the situation where a directory path has changed and I have emails that have hyperlinks to files (in the emails) that point to the old path. In my old Unix days I would have just created a link using ln command. In Windows I can create a shortcut to the old directory (which works in explorer), but the name I create has a .lnk extension. This seems to break the hyperlink.
Does anyone know a way to make the old path valid so that the hyperlinks work?
- Hyperlink points to c:\a\x.doc
- c:\a is renamed c:\b
- shortcut c:\a created pointing to c:\b
- off course c:\a is actually c:\a.lnk in Windows
- Hyperlink broken
In my real situation the moved directory sits in the middle of a long path.
Any help/workaround would be appreciated.
