Snapshot link BROKEN, can it be fixed?


Snapshot links that were made by a client in an FM Server environment contain target information that links to that database on the server.  If created on a server, snapshot links won't open a backup, locally.

I need to open these server-environment snapshots in my local backup, so I can re-save NEW snapshot links that WILL work on my local backup.

Here is the FILEMAKER system message that pops up when I try to open a snapshot link:

The file “Inventory” could not be opened.  Either the host is not available, or the file is not available on that host.

How can I open these old snapshots on my local database copy?  I have 25 snapshots that I need to open.
