Downtime, Lost Data and Data Migrations

How to Be the IT Hero

We handle one of the most common causes of missing data after a migration — broken file links.

What type of migration project are you doing?

What type of migration project are you doing?

SharePoint Migration

Cloud or On-Premises

It seems like half the modern world is moving to SharePoint these days. SharePoint may be popular, but what’s not popular is the process of migrating to it. Many IT professionals have lost data during these migrations due to broken file links caused by the process of migrating.
Let LinkFixer Advanced protect your links and possibly your job.

Microsoft 365 Migration

The benefits of this industry-leading platform cannot be ignored. But whether you are using SharePoint or OneDrive for your cloud file storage, there’s a sneaky problem that occurs while you are migrating to Microsoft 365: File links break by the thousands. This results in missing data (and complaining end-users).
By automatically handling your file links, LinkFixer Advanced can prevent data from going missing in the first place, or can restore data that seems to have disappeared (if you have already migrated).

OneDrive Migration

OneDrive handily allows users to store files and personal data in the cloud, making moving to a remote work environment a breeze. Of course, the moment you move or rename files or folders, or begin any kind of restructuring, links break and data is lost. LinkFixer Advanced can prevent that from happening, or restore your lost data if things have already gone awry.

Server Refresh and Upgrades

(What your hardware rep won’t tell you)

Upgrading server infrastructure on a regular schedule improves performance, efficiency and reliability. What your hardware rep won’t tell you is all about the hassle of maintaining your file links in the process and the consequences of failing to do so (lost data, downtime, complaining users). LinkFixer Advanced makes this a breeze.

Migrate Files to Azure

When it comes to migrating files to or from Azure File Share, finding reliable file migration tools is crucial. As a powerful file migration tool, LinkFixer Advanced can make the process less daunting by providing migration without any data loss due to broken links.
So, if you want to ensure a smoother and lower-stress file migration to or from Azure File Share, consider using LinkFixer Advanced, the go-to tool for automatically protecting good links and fixing broken links during file migrations.

Box Migration

When it comes to migrating to Box, it is important to think outside the box. Yes, Box enables the secure and reliable cloud storage of your files and folders, but moving files or folders around can still result in data that seems to have disappeared.
This is the result of links being broken during a move and it's exactly what LinkFixer Advanced was designed to automatically handle for you.

File System Restructuring

Files and folders get reorganized — sometimes by you, sometimes by others. Either way, you need to pay careful attention to your links. Those links, when broken — which will happen in the process of renaming files, folders or drives — cause problems for users (lost data, downtime). And we all know that user problems become your problems. LinkFixer Advanced can avoid the whole mess for you.

Dropbox Migration

Dropbox is well-known for its online storage capabilities and file sharing features. But one thing not contained in its toolbox is a way to prevent the lost data that occurs when you move or rename files and folders that contain links. For this, a powerhouse like LinkFixer Advanced is the right tool for the job, either to prevent the links from breaking in the first place, or to repair the broken links and automatically restore your lost data after the fact.

Migrate Files to Amazon Web Services

Migrations to Cloud-hosted services such as AWS are unfortunately not immune to data loss. Protecting your linked data — pre-migration — is one of the surest ways to guard against data loss due to broken links. This is what LinkFixer Advanced was born to do.
If your migration is already complete, you could also use LinkFixer Advanced as your disaster recovery tool that will locate and repair broken links, instantly restoring the missing data.
Whether you’re migrating files and folders to AWS or some other Cloud platform, LinkFixer Advanced can protect your linked data, guarding against data loss.

Migrating to The Cloud

New cloud-based storage systems seem to be popping up every day, and the benefits of each are well documented. However, what isn’t well documented are the problems (missing data, user downtime) resulting from the migration causing file links to break.
LinkFixer Advanced can re-link everything for you, fast and automatically.

Patented to Safeguard Your Peace of Mind

LinkFixer Advanced is not only the best link mapping tool on the market, in terms of preserving links and automatically fixing links in massive batches of thousands at a time, it’s the only tool on the market. LinkTek was awarded a patent on the technology that safeguards your links in advance, meaning nothing you migrate, rename, or move will become a broken link — just inoculate and cure! Essentially, LinkFixer Advanced inserts a “locator beacon” into each parent file (a file containing links) and into each child file linked to that parent file. These “locator beacons” are unique to each parent-child combination, allowing LinkFixer Advanced to re-unite all these files automatically, after your project is completed. You can also use it on a periodic basis to ensure that all of your links continue to work.

LinkFixer Advanced Reports

LinkFixer Advanced is a powerful tool for analyzing your websites, work documents, spreadsheets, image files and more. It creates complete reports that highlight errors and problems within a wide range of file types. Our special reporting options help you identify the links that aren’t working properly and see where they should link. If you’re interested in an evaluation of your files and links, simply build a report so you can review the data in PDF or CSV format:
  • Broken Link Report — Lists all the parent files that contain one or more broken links and tells you which links are broken.
  • Regular Report — Lists each parent file, followed by all the child files that parent links to.
  • Cross-Reference Report — The opposite of the Regular Report, this report lists each child file, followed by all the parent files that have links pointing to it.
You can, for example, generate a report listing all files containing broken links and use automated rules in LinkFixer Advanced to fix them!
