Repath Projects/Batch Repair Broken Project Folder Links

Perform the following procedure after you have moved project folders to a new location in the file system. This process repairs the broken links that occur when folders are moved. For example, if you moved or renamed the root folder containing multiple project folders, you would need to perform this procedure to repair the resulting broken links and update the Project Center Server with the new project folder name or location.

You must be a Project Center administrator to perform this procedure.
