Batch updating links between detached attachments and emails in Outlook

Kutools for Excel's Detach All (Attachments) utility can help you batch detach/extract attachments and add links to these attachments in corresponding emails in Outlook. However, sometimes you may move the detached attachments from the original saving folder to other folders, leading all links between attachments and emails broken. In this case, you can apply Kutools for Excel's Recovery Detach utility to batch update links between detached attachments and emails in Outlook.
