All the history for each contact is linked to an external hard disc or

harddrive holding all my data. When I change the path of this external

documents, bcm won't find them any more. Do I have to change the links of

thousands of documents or is there a better way?

Using an external hard disc or harddrive and linking them with bcm contacts:

will there be further problems?

Thanks a lot.

Because BCM doesn't actually store the document, it only links to the

document's location. Therefore, ff you change the file path of the document's

location, it breaks the link in BCM. The only way I have found to "relink"

documents with changed file paths is to recreate a new history item and point

it to the new location.

The other thing to remember is, if other users do not have access to the

document location, they will not be able to open the history item. I have

worked around this by storing all documents on a shared drive that all users

have access to. If you are keeping your docs on an external hard drive, no

body else will be able to pull those documents from the history link without

being attached to that external hard drive.
