Shortcuts Search And Replace allows to do easy operations on shortcuts :
 -  Search for shortcuts target path, working directory, arguments, and icon location content
 -  Replace multiple shortcuts target path, working directory, arguments, and icon location content (useful when moving portable applications to another drive or another folder)
 -  Search dead links, to resolve or delete them (multiple resolves/delete in single click)

ShortcutsSearchAndReplace can manage multiple custom directories.
Two options are availables. You can enter in the "Custom Path" field either
 -  Multiple directories split by ';' like "C:\Directory1;C:\Directory2;C:\Directory3"
 -  The path of a text file containing one directory per line with "File:" prefix like "File:C:\YourTextFile.txt"

During the replace preview of replace operation, if the modified link won't target an existing file,
the item is automatically unchecked and a warning image   is used for the shortcut
