When using the LinkFixer Advanced Modify Links processes to modify links within Adobe InDesign files, you will need to ensure that the child files that the modified links will point to exist at the location specified by the modified links. To avoid creating broken links, the Adobe InDesign applications server automatically checks for the existence of child files before modifying link paths to point to them. If the child files do not exist in the new location or do not have the same file names as will be contained in the modified links in the parent files, the InDesign application server will not modify the links.

By default, LinkFixer Advanced also conducts a similar check for the existence of the child files before modifying links to point to a new location. Although this safety feature can be turned off in LinkFixer Advanced, it cannot be disabled in InDesign.
