How to Avoid a Hidden Cause of Downtime

Have Your Links Automatically Fixed When You Move or Rename Files

LinkFixer-Advanced-product-box-with-hero

Lost data, lost time, lost money, complaining end-users and frustrated executives are each a frequent result of data migrations or file system changes. These unhappy symptoms have several causes, and we can’t solve them all. But we can solve one of the most common causes of such messes: broken file links.

SharePoint Migration — Cloud or On-Premises

It seems like half the modern world is moving to SharePoint these days. SharePoint may be popular, but what’s not popular is the process of migrating to it. Many IT pros have lost data during these migrations due to broken file links. Let LinkFixer Advanced protect your links and possibly your job.

Server Refresh and Upgrades

(What your hardware rep won’t tell you)

While never a party, upgrading server infrastructure on a regular schedule improves performance, efficiency and reliability. What your hardware sales rep won’t tell you about is the hassle of maintaining your file links in the process. LinkFixer Advanced makes this a breeze.

Folder Restructuring

Whatever the reason, files and folders get restructured and you need to pay careful attention to your links. Those links, when broken, cause problems for users. And we all know users end up causing problems for you. Avoid the whole mess when you have to reorganize and restructure folders with LinkFixer Advanced.

Migrating to The Cloud

The benefits of moving to OpenText, Azure, AWS or any other platform are well documented. However, what isn’t well documented are the hidden problems that usually accompany the move. LinkFixer Advanced can prevent the downtime associated with broken links.

Avoid a Links Disaster With
LinkFixer Advanced 

Broken links result in missing data. Data migrations usually result in thousands (sometimes millions) of broken links. LinkFixer Advanced saves your time and your organization a ton of money by protecting your good links and automatically fixing your broken links for you. (It can also save your weekends.)

Let LinkFixer Advanced Handle Your Migration

One way you could use LinkFixer Advanced is to have it move and rename your files and folders. The magic here is that it can do this while automatically maintaining all your good links in the process. See the video to the left for a quick overview of this.

Alternatively, Let LinkFixer Advanced Safeguard Your Links, Before Your Migration

If you already have a set of tools to do your migration, you can still have LinkFixer Advanced take care of your links. LinkFixer Advanced can “pre-safeguard” links so that you can do all the moving, renaming and restructuring you want with total impunity (at least as far as links are concerned). This pre-safeguarding is called “Inoculate”, which sets up your files and links such that after your migration is complete, LinkFixer Advanced can automatically and quickly restore every link.

Do You Already Have Broken Links?

Okay, so you didn’t find out about us in time to pre-safeguard your links, and now you’ve got thousands of broken ones. You can relax because LinkFixer Advanced has this situation covered too. No matter why your links got broken, LinkFixer Advanced has a process called “Modify Links” that can fix already-broken links faster than any other method on planet Earth.

Think of this as “Link Disaster Recovery”. To get a quick outline of how this feature works, watch the video to the left.

The tool worked wonderfully for our project, and I highly recommend it to anyone who was in our situation, moving from a file share structure to DFS. Everyone on your team who I worked with was very professional and courteous.

Patented to Safeguard Your Peace of Mind

LinkFixer Advanced is not only the best link mapping tool on the market, in terms of preserving links and automatically fixing links in massive batches of thousands at a time, it’s the only tool on the market. LinkTek was awarded a patent on the technology that safeguards your links in advance, meaning nothing you migrate, rename, or move will become a broken link — just inoculate and cure! Essentially, LinkFixer Advanced inserts a “locator beacon” into each parent file (a file containing links) and into each child file linked to that parent file. These “locator beacons” are unique to each parent-child combination, allowing LinkFixer Advanced to re-unite all these files automatically, after your project is completed. You can also use it on a periodic basis to ensure that all of your links continue to work.

LinkFixer Advanced Reports

LinkFixer Advanced is a powerful tool for analyzing your websites, work documents, spreadsheets, image files and more. It creates complete reports that highlight errors and problems within a wide range of file types. Our special reporting options help you identify the links that aren’t working properly and see where they should link.

If you’re interested in an evaluation of your files and links, simply build a report so you can review the data in PDF or CSV format:

  • Broken Link Report — Lists all the parent files that contain one or more broken links
  • Regular Report — Lists each parent file, followed by all the child files that parent links to
  • Cross-Reference Report — The opposite of the Regular Report, this report lists each child file, followed by all the parent files that have links pointing to it

You can, for example, generate a report listing all files containing broken links and use automated rules in LinkFixer Advanced to fix them!
