I have a document library(Lib_A) and the files in this library are referred in Pages. I had a requirement to modify the URL of Lib_A to Lib_A_Old and then create a new document library with the same name as Lib_A.

Once done, all the URLs (in pages library) pointing to the files in old Lib_A are automatically changed to Lib_A_Old. I dont want this change and would like these urls to be /sitename/Lib_A/documentName rather than /sitename/Lib_A_old/documentName. Is this the sharepoint behaviour or is there anything that can be done to retain the URL referenece?

If you insert link from SharePoint, after you change the URL of the document library, all the URLs (in pages library) pointing to the files in old Lib_A will be automatically changed to Lib_A_Old.

As an workaround, choose insert link from Address:
