Just guessing here, but I don't think you get the links back unless the file structure on the new computer matches the old setup, if that's even possible. best of luck!

Under File: Options Visual Effects You will find these:

Validate file links dynamically
When this option is enabled, each time a map with file links is opened, MindManager will verify the links. If broken links are found they will be indicated by a special icon and the you will be prompted to repair them.
Enabling this option may slow performance if links point to maps on a network drive.

Update My Maps links dynamically
When this option is enabled, MindManager will verify the shortcuts in the My Maps task pane each time it is opened. If broken links are found they will be indicated by a special icon and the Repair broken map shortcuts command will display.
Enabling this option may slow performance if shortcuts point to maps on a network drive.

Now there is way that you could set an option that keeps links connected,
In this version it can be found for instance when right-click a link and select edit link. There you can set keep link paths relative (default) or Absolute.

So if you still are able to return to the older computer, you may be able to change this.

The replies so far seem to address something that is working. "All hyperlinks to external files or to a topic in another map are working" . Please can you give an example or expand on
"BUT all the links inside the MAP are broken"?

The problem is solved . Except for one MAP, all maps were stored on a repository with a lightly different file structure that I did not notice.  Thank you for your assistance and  Sorry for the unconvenience.

regards
