Open all the xml file inside the project folder, and replace the path. 

 

If you're using 2012 version, drawing info is stored in the database, not xml. Drawing should open without problem because it will search the relative path. But the drawing template that you assign to the folder will have problem, you need to fix the path in the database.

I'm using 2011 So I would open them up with notepad and change the directory?

yes, better off using notepad++ and use "replace in all opened documents."
