Abstract

A method is disclosed for dynamically migrating groups of files that are related by some characteristic from one location to another on a computer system without requiring the software to be modified. The method requires the software to create fully qualified pathnames (or "absolute pathnames") for the files it accesses according to the algorithm disclosed below.
