Software fixes broken links in SQL tables

Software fixes broken links in SQL tables

LinkFixer Advanced, known for its ability to automatically fix file links within common file types, has been upgraded to automatically preserve and fix links stored in SQL databases, saving IT departments from the headaches of lost data when files are moved or renamed.

LinkTek Corp.’s LinkFixer Advanced software eliminates the process of manually finding and fixing broken file links in SQL databases, such as when files or folders are moved during a data migration to a different drive, server, storage device — or even into a content management system, such as SharePoint or OpenText. 

Links within SQL databases that reference those files and folders are automatically updated so links do not break during the migration or renaming process, according to the company.

The tool can also be used to fix broken links in batch, even if files or folders were moved or renamed without using LinkFixer Advanced to begin with (for example, when using Windows Explorer, RoboCopy or a data migration application).

LinkFixer Advanced for SQL supports the most commonly used SQL databases, such as Microsoft SQL.
