Hi,

 

if you open your drawing you get now a "missing XRef" message? If so you should have the possibility to show then the new file, hence I don't know if that worked back to 2009,

If none of these XRef-dialog options fit there is a chance to save your drawing as DXF, then open the DXF with an ascii-editor like Notepad+ (at least an editor that can load big files). There you can search for the old path+name and replace against the new one. After saving this load it in AutoCAD and do a _SAVEAS to save it as DWG file.

 

Goos luck, - alfred -
