Insert File - store only a reference to the file

I understand this option "store only a reference to the file" may go away, that would be a problem for me.  Is there another way to get the "source path" of the file (I know the path if I store it externally in the FMS documents folder, but need the path of where it originated from).  My users reach into dozens of folders on other servers to get specific files throughout the day.  Currently when checking this box (manually) I can capture the original path/location of the file.

 

1. Is there another way to capture the "original" location of the file to be stored using Insert File?

2. Is there another way to automatically select this option when doing an Insert File script step?  It seems to require users to remember to click this option.

 

Thank you in advance

 

Mike
