Move files without rehashing?

2 posts in this topic

I have thousands of files hashed and just want to reorganize them a bit without killing my hard disk by unnecessarily hashing them all over again. (Before someone says "What if the files get corrupted?", they can get corrupted at any time and not only when I am moving them on the same drive, so I take full responsibility for it.)

In HashIndex.xml there are lines with the following format:
<File Name="full_path_to_file" TimeStamp="..." Root="..."/>


Can I just search-replace the file paths after moving all the files and have the client start up and continue sharing as before without complaining? Or are the paths also factored into the hashes somehow and will changing them break the hash index?
