    Cad links lost their path

    I have multiple cad links (over 50) that somehow lost their path in revit

    Somehow, the file path is changing on certain dwg's that have been linked to my project since the beginning. I have no idea what happened or why revit is selecting certain dwgs and not others.

    I'm noticing that the ones that lost their path begin with
    L:\...

    The dwg's that are cool and cooperating begin with:
    \\SERVER...

    How did this happen?

    Someone on your project team doesnt have the Mapped Drive Letter L"\ configured the same as everyone else. Its why Drive Letters SUCK.

    On every workstation that's touching your project, and under every user name that's logged in to those machines.

    It's got nothing to do with Revit. It's a computer/IT/decision that got made.

    Sent from my Phablet. Please excuse typos... and bad ideas.
