Greetings, Andrey Repin!

find -L / -xdev -type l -execdir fixmylinks.ps1 OldPathFragment New\\PathFragment '{}' +

In all broken links, script will look for "OldPathFragment", and if replacing
the fragment with "New\\PathFragment" produce valid existing path, it will
create a new link in place.

With best regards,
