my organization is a large ESRI user and we are under going some hardware changes. My question is:
Is there a way to move several shapefiles scattered across many folders (in one server) to another, completely new server, in an efficient manner without compromising the integrity of associated MXD files?
I'm aware that I can cut and paste the folders over but that would take ages as I'd have to reset each MXD file's layers data source to the correct path. This is the main concern.
Perhaps there might be python solution however my scripting ability is weak.
