dissapearing label objects linked to a data references

Hello, we are currently experiencing an issue when we label objects linked to a data references we have labels disappearing in our drawings. These labels include spot elevations, alignment labels, profile pipe labels, profile bands, structure tables, etc. I think it is a problem with the data shortcuts because when the labels are gone usually the data shortcutted surfaces are listed as <No Name Provided> and the data shortcut working folder project is lost (defaults to the C drive). Usually this happens when final markups are being completed and then isn’t realized until the drawings are plotted or a review agency comments.Yes, I have restarted my AutoCAD.Yes, I have restarted my computer.Yes, I have run recover on the drawings.Yes, I have audited the drawings.Yes, I have created a new data shortcut folder.Yes, I have set the working folder.Yes, I have associated the project to the drawings.Yes, I have done all this for every drawing that it within the project. Is anyone else experiancing this or have a solution?

Does issuing the command SYNCHRONIZEREFERENCES bring things back to 'normal'?

Does your office not have a network?  I would store all drawings and drawing shortcuts on the network.  The problem you are experiencing is when the refernce link goes MIA.  If you browse to the correct path all your labels will reappear.  The link to the object in the drawing will nto go away, but it will not have a clue of what you are pointing that label to if the link is non existant.

 

Hope I am making sense, but if you do not have a network I would look at least into getting a NAS.

We have not specifically tried that command, in the tool space, we right click on the surface and click synchronize, then we are prompted to either "update the surface name" or "keep the old name" (<No Name Provided>). When we click update the surface name, the name updates and all the data is correct, but all the labels associated with the surface are gone.

We do have a network. When we update the surface name by syncronizing it, all the information associated with the surface is correct, but the labels are gone.

I have attached a drawing with an example of some of the issues we are experiancing. In the drawing you'll notice that there are two tables, Storm Structure Table, and Sanitary Structure Table, the tables generally list all the "Structure Objects" but the tables have lost the reference. Any Ideas?
