Utility to repair hyperlinks in office documents/pdf/mindmap

Hello

I'm looking for a free utility resembling link repair v 3 (vantage softtec), replace magic or linktek.
See: http://www.replacemagic.com/RMProfessionalFull.aspx
LinkTek: http://www.linktek.com/.

Not looking for a website hyperlink repair tool, rather a tool to repair broken hyperlinks in office documents.

I need this because I'm organising a digital trashday and folder restructuring in local governments. When the administration starts moving their files around they will need a solution for the hyperlink problem.

A tool that doesn't repair but locates the broken hyperlinks/moved documents only would work too. This would allow manual repair.

Does anybody know about such a free tool?
Thanks in advance
Elisabeth

This seems like something to program to your requirements. MS Office has quite powerful options.

It's an impossible undertaking to check document per document. The tool needs to be able to scan multiple files in multiple folders for problems with links.

That's no problem for your experienced programmer.

Your programmer plus maybe a tool like WordPipe.

But you have that requirement it must be free. That can mean it is worth nothing to you to have fixed? Or did I misread you?
