[Oliver Peters] "When relinking media, is there a way to not have FCPX immediately try to match names as it searches? This is often an incredible waste of time, when you could manually navigate to the desired file more quickly."

During relink you can navigate to the folder where the file is, click on that and it will only search that one folder. I have seen varying behavior on this in past versions where sometimes it would apparently start searching before you clicked on the target folder. In some past versions this could be very slow. But it currently seems to behave as expected and it seems fast -- at least on my machine.

Within a given drive volume, relink is not normally necessary. You can shut down FCPX, rename every media file, move each file to a different location, go inside the library package and delete all the symlinks to the media, start FCPX and it will find all the files and rebuild all symlinks with the new filenames and locations. It is apparently storing the inode or other locator within two SQL tables inside CurrentVersion.fcpevent.

The inode is only unique to a volume so if the name changes or the media is placed on a different drive, then relink is necessary. Relink for media usually works very well. The big problem is there's no relink for proxies.
