If the relative path from your .bib file to the linked files is the
same, things should just work. So if you formerly had
and now have
things should just work if you open up myfile.bib in the latter
location. Once you've opened it successfully with links intact, save
it in order to update the alias information. After the aliases have
been updated, you can move the .bib file back to ~/myfile.bib or
wherever you want.
