Design Data path changed, IV still looks to previous path

We have recently been consolidating our network drives, and moved our Design Data folder from one drive to another.  Since that, we set up our new CAD stations with fresh installs of Inventor 2013 Pro.  In the file paths, we set Design Data to the new location.  However, Inventor is still looking to the old drive, which is no longer there.  This is messing up a lot of things, as you can well imagine.  This is what we see whenever we open an existing Inventor file, OR one of our templates.  How are these embedded into the files themselves, and how can I force Inventor to see the new location?

Got it!  Default project file was still pointing to the old Design Data folder.  D'oh!  I knew I was short of sleep today, dut dang!
