An option is the "Set Data Source" tool in ArcCatalog:


I've used it once or twice and seem to work fine for my projects.

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?
