Need to update all media locations after copying catalog to another computer on my network

Computers 1 and 2 are on a network. I have a catalog located on computer 1 that refers to media on computer 2. When I opened a copy of the catalog on computer 2, none of the media could be found. I know how to update the location of media one item at a time, but how can I update the locations of all the media as a batch?

John,

If the assets are all in the same relative path you can select all and then link the first one. The system will then link all other assets in that path. Then you can save the updates.

It should also ask you if you want to create an "equivalent path" for that computer. In your case I would guess yes, since the computers seem like they will be used at the same time.

Typically if you are moving assets on the same computer, we'd say "no". So choose what suits your workflow best.

Also, sorry, forgot to add that when/if you add that equivalent path it will make it so all assets on that original path in the future will also link correctly.
