I forgot to mention that we work in a SourceSafe environment, so the Rename Project option is disabled. I am fairly new to RH and am still learning the UI ropes.
I have recently joined this company as the sole Tech Author. One of my predecessors used a naming convention that was incomprehensible to me. So, before I could create the new TOC for this project, I had to re-name over half the topics so I could find them in relation to the software... but RH crashed while doing this forcing me to rebuild the project from SourceSafe. The reason that I mention this is that I had hundreds of broken links all based on the old TOC, and so assumed the broken links was TOC-based. I guess a bad example to have chosen - it was just my biggest job.
Another example could be Tools > Reports > Unused Files (and the other reports in this popup) which all analyse the default structure. They could be really useful if I could get them to look at the new structure?
To be honest I think you need to get a decision on whether you need to maintain two versions of the project before doing anything. If you do, I think maintaining everything in one project is the best solution. If you don't you may want to consider doing a Get Latest from SourceSafe to a new directory. From there you should be able to rename the project and then add it to SourceSafe as a new project.
Looks like I need to put a business case forward to upgrade to RH8! I need the change default option, and improved stability. Thank you both for your assistance
