Copying aliases between volumes

Recommended Posts

I am moving a folder from my laptop to an external drive to free up space. In this folder, I have aliases in some subfolders that refer to files in other subfolders. However, when I move the folder, the aliases seem to be broken. Is there a way to either copy or create aliases so that it refers to another file using the relative folder reference:


e.g. Alias 1 refers to:


Alias 1 is in:


Volume 1/Folder 1/SubFolder 1/


and refers to a file:


Volume 1/Folder 1/SubFolder 2/file 1


once moved, the alias is located at:


Volume 2/Folder 1/SubFolder 1/


and once moved to the new volume, I would like for it to automatically refer to:


Volume 2/Folder 1/SubFolder 2/file 1


Is this possible?
