I just filled up my C:. My files and projects are saved in Doc and Setting/Me/Acid 7 Projects. All the projects and wav files are saved in the same dir. I have added a new hard drive. I moved all the files ovet to the new hard drive. All the projects reference the C:. I need them to reference the new drive. Is there a way to do that with having to do all the manual labor moving the links? There are 100's of projects. Thanks

There really isn't anything I can think of off the bat without having ACID find the files again for you (by pointing to the folder where the project's files are). I would probably do it on a project-by-project basis or when I had the free time to do so.

If you still have them on the original drive you could try saving them as ACID-zip files. This will package a project up with all it's media files into a single compressed file. Move these compressed files to the new drive. When you open them there ACID should restore all the references to the current, new location.

Another advantage is that you could use this method to easily group projects into subdirectories instead of having them all in one huge folder.
