Data Short cut editor

What specifically does the data short cut editor do? I want to archive a project and redirect the data shortcuts to the archived folder, but keep getting a invalid path error trying to use find and replace.

 

What is the BP for doing this?

Thank you

Somewhat, except I did not rename anything. I copied my drawing files and the shortcut folder to an archive and I am trying to redirect the shortcuts to the archive location.
Thank you

My workaround on the other thread worked fine, which seems to be 'as designed'. So you're saying that you're trying to point to a drawing which has the same name as the old drawing, but in a different location, and you're getting the same error I was getting? In that case I don't know, because it worked fine for me.

That is correct. renaming would not be an equitable solution for me; too many files.
