Files gone missing...

Sorry if this is an old question but as a newbie to Blender I’ve just found that the links to some files seem to have been broken.

I am trying to open a number of files that now don’t appear in my directory. I can find them by using the external data and find missing files but cannot seem to open them in order to save and restore the link.

Is this a bug or some issue caused by me?

Are you talking about texture images or .blend files? Also, did you move any of these missing files into different folders?
