Preventing Excel Data Loss
One way you can use LinkFixer Advanced would be to use it to do your migration or folder system changes. With the Move/Rename tool, you can quickly move and rename batches of parent files and all of their child files, with LinkFixer Advanced automatically handling all the links for you so that they do not break in the process. That way, you won’t have to worry about any broken links related to your Excel files (or almost any other files too, for that matter). Move and/or rename thousands of files and folders at the same time without a single break.
But what if you have to use a certain application for your data migration?
Even if you don’t use LinkFixer Advanced to do the actual migration, it can still handle your links for you. Read the next section below.
