“I want to thank you and your techs for their help with our project. We were able to sift through over 600 GB’s of data with thousands of Microsoft Office files and fix links. Due to a server change that did not support spaces in root folder names, we had to remove spaces from 7 root folders on our Network Appliance filer. We were able to do this with little or no impact to our end users by changing links with the folder name in it to a UNC path. This allowed us to fix the links and then make the change to the folder name. I have spread the word in the Deere community that your product works great.”
Michael Nowels, Network Administrator
“The tool worked wonderfully for our project, and I highly recommend it to anyone who was in our situation, moving from a file share structure to DFS.
Everyone on your team who I worked with was very professional and courteous. I can’t thank you enough; using the tool, the support and the sales experiences were some of the best experiences I’ve encountered.”

“We had upgraded a customer’s file server and there were many undocumented links across many folders. If LinkFixer had only documented the links we would have been happy, but we completed the rebuilding of the links for our customer, and I thought you might be interested in the number of links fixed – 12,000! (Yes there are three zeroes after the 12!) I will recommend [LinkFixer] to any other customers that use linked spreadsheets.”

“LinkFixerPlus enables me to do my job more efficiently. Before LinkFixerPlus the process of link-checking was extremely time-consuming. I had to open the document I was working with and manually click on each hyperlink. Now, I am able to use LinkFixerPlus and it is as easy as selecting which documents I would like to link-check and running the program. It is possible to run LinkFixerPlus on multiple documents saved in various locations. LinkFixerPlus has turned a once tedious process into a quick and simple task.”
“Broken links can cause high blood pressure. Okay, maybe not….maybe it’s just me. But the number one problem we needed a solution for was how to prevent broken links when updating disclosure packages. Each updated package is renamed to reflect the most recent version, with the previous information being brought forward to the next package. Under the new document name, all previous links became broken.
“LinkFixer proved to be THE solution. We can now carry our information forward without losing any links, then continue linking the new information all within a timely, cost-efficient manner (LinkFixer performs this task in minutes compared to the two to three days it takes to manually re-establish all the previous links). I highly recommend LinkFixer as the number one solution for addressing the problem of broken links.
The program is a lifesaver when carrying over large numbers of documents with links to a new file folder…don’t know how we ever managed without it quite frankly.”
“We were migrating from a Novell environment to Windows Active Directory and therefore had to move data from a lettered drive, which had tons of financial spreadsheets containing links to other lettered drives, to a non-lettered drive format. Therefore we looked for any software that could automate this process and save us time. We estimated that we had some 100,000 links (at a minimum) and that LinkFixerPlus would save us some 2,500 hours of manually updating these links in Excel.
We also have an internal website that is job-dependent for our customer service department, and needed to have any data moves and updating of links done immediately after the data move is completed. The time savings for updating these links [using LinkFixerPlus] is tremendous, as there are hundreds of links on these web pages.
Time and cost of locating and repairing 100,000 broken links without using LinkFixerPlus:
• Estimated project hours: 2,500 hours
• Estimated hourly cost: $30.14 ($60,279 / 50 weeks / 40 hours )
• Total estimated cost: $75,350
Time and cost of locating and repairing 100,000 broken links using LinkFixerPlus:
• Actual project time: Under 5 hours
• Estimated hourly cost: $30.14 ($60,279 / 50 weeks / 40 hours )
• Total estimated cost: $151
Dean Health Systems saved $75,199 on this one project alone, a savings of 99%! By using LinkFixerPlus, the daunting task of repairing over 100,000 links was done quickly and efficiently”

“LinkFixer was used for a specific data migration project which has now been completed. The software allowed us to easily identify links within over 60 gigabytes of documents and data, and change them to point to a new server. The execution of the link fixing process was straightforward and saved the project team a great deal of time and money.”

“We are an ISO 9000:2001 certified company and part of that requires a huge master document list, which has accumulated over 1000 lines, all linked to a variety of corresponding documents. It is very important to have these links working at all times. Previously it would take me hours to check each link in the documents, at least once a week. Now with LinkFixer, it takes me only minutes to run the report to check for [and fix] any broken links! I am so glad that I have this program, I would not be without it!”

“We had a project to clean-up the file structure on our group drive. As part of this project we identified thousands of word and excel documents which had imbedded links. In order to make the change as painless as possible, we used the LinkFixer tool to automatically switch those links for us. I would say that it worked for 99% of our links which saved us a lot of time overall.”
“LinkFixer has done an excellent job for us – thanks to your team for a great product!”
“Back in 2004, we were migrating Netware File Server over to Windows 2003 Server File Server. We were required to update all Excel 2003 links within all documents to reflect the new server name. Since then the software was only used on few occasions where we were moving group of files from one server to another. The tool was a good choice and worked perfectly every time.”
“We purchased the software with a specific requirement to ensure all links within Excel spreadsheets were maintained when our Local Government Authority introduced a new network naming convention. They were not simply re-allocating drive letters, but completely changing the folder naming conventions.
Links were a mix of simple cell references to other spreadsheets, cell references in complex formula, references in data names, pivot tables and VBA. There were also data connections to some access databases.
We used the software to analyze the file structure and find all links before the migration and to fix broken links where needed before any changes were made to the file structures.
I was also able to analyze file structures and fix links for other departments on behalf of our IT department, who had not found any alternative automated methods of checking and fixing links to help with the migration. The IT department were impressed with the speed, accuracy and ease of Link Fixer.
I again recently used the software when someone decided to move a load of files without thinking to tell anyone else. Again the software solved the problem in minutes. This software is definitely in my armory of IT tools!”

“The software has made things a whole lot easier for us. We converted links in over 4000 documents in a little less than 2 days (most of that was spent importing and exporting data). We have also used it on some other things here and there but for the most part, the time we saved on the initial project paid for the software in itself.”
“The Application has helped us sort out the issues we had with the migration of several hundreds of links in Excel 2003 to 2007. Thanks to Link Fixer we were able to complete the migration of the software while maintaining the integrity of the data.”
