Changing external references

I've got an interface file that runs off of typical server files but also references files on the client side. Let's say the interface file is in directory "X". The external files have also been residing in X. But now I want to put the external files in a subdirectory X/Y. I have external references defined to the original external file position in X and I have TO's based on these file positions. If I just physically move the files to X/Y what will I have to do and in what order (to the external reference definitions and TO's) so as to not break anything? My brain is out of synch on this; I did it a couple of times and lost connection to referenced fields on layouts and even putting the files back into X didn't recover the connection.

 

Thanks for any help,

 

William
