I had backed up laptop using standard windows process. Moving to new laptop and I find myself having to rename those files on the ext HD to bring them.

For example -  the song file is looking for Vox(1) in media. The file on the hard drive is Vox(1) (Date then Time UTC)  

I’ve learned that there’s a better backup method to use but I’m trying to save myself from renaming hundreds of media files  Thanks!

If you know that it's the correct file, hold ALT and drag it on top of the media clip to replace, or newly reference that file.
