There may be a script you can download but there is no way to do it with plain ArcGIS. I would recommend you set your maps to use relative paths in the future. That way as long as the data and map stay in the same location relative to one another you will not have this problem again. That setting is under map properties.

  Subject: shrug-l: Set Data Source

  Is there a way to change the data source for multiple data layers in ArcMap?  We recently changed our data library location and now all my links have to be reset.  Only part of the path name has changed (i.e. V: to N:\Data Library).  Any suggestions?
