This important process prepares your files so that the links they contain can be automatically fixed after the files are migrated to a new location. Your files will be safe from the dangers of broken links.
“Inoculation” is a patented process where a unique “LinkID” value is assigned to each child file pointed to by non-broken links in a parent file. These LinkIDs are then embedded within the child files as well as within the links in the parent file that point to the child files. This creates a secondary association between the parent file and each of its child files.
Then, should a link become broken because files or folders were either moved or renamed (such as during a data migration), the complementary “Cure” process can be run to automatically fix the broken links in the parent file.
