Illustrator links fails when moved from source server. - Adobe Illustrator Windows

All. I have a store of about 100Gb of graphics file - a large proportion of those were created using Illustrator.

    Default Illustrator links fails when moved from source server.

    All.

    I have a store of about 100Gb of graphics file - a large proportion of
    those were created using Illustrator.

    Most of the files have links back to a comprehensive library of stock
    images
    held on the same server in a central directory. After moving the files
    to the new server none of the links now work - even after recreating
    the same network share and remapping to the same local drive.

    Investigating the problem showed that the original files store the
    servername/sharename as part of the link !

    Therefore unless the file is called from the server it was created
    from the link will fail. It would seem that although the user believed
    link was made to
    Z:\images\filename... it's stored as \\server\share\images\filename.

    Would somebody please tell me I am wrong. I dont known of any other product
    That hardcodes server names into data files.

    Regards
    Dave
