Need to change all linked files (large number) to same directory but new drive letter.  IS there a global edit function that will help ... or other suggestions?

If you have your map(s) stored iin a large folder in the same location as al your linked files, than you should be able to copy paste that folder to the new drive letter and see if the links are still OK.

You might be able to achieve this using the Find and Replace functionality and specifically tell it to search just in the links:

Worked perfectly.  1st map replaced 425 links in about 10 seconds.  This would have been a nightmare manually.  Thank you!
