Default Re-Linking Files - Navigating to Relevant Folder

There has got to be a better way.

I'm in the middle of a collaborative project which requires me to regularly re-link audio files in sessions that have been passed between studios. When I open a session I will opt to manually re-link the files and the Re-Link Workspace window pops up. So then I need to navigate my volume structure to get somewhere near enough to the files so that I don't need to search broadly multiple hard disks for the files.

Volumes > Work Drive > Dropbox > Active Sessions > Client Directory > Project Directory > Sub-Directory > Sub-Directory. . . .

I'm familiar with Catalogs but I don't want to maintain and update an index. I just need an easier way to get to the same folders I routinely need to access. Am I missing something or is this is just a glaring oversight in the design of the Workspace dialog? Where are the fav directories?

set a preset that opens the left side to the folder you are going to link to.
Then you just have to click the preset (1-5) and then check the folder.

But, no, it doesn't get better than that. Even with Spotlight indexing.

I've set presets before and all it did was resize the window. It didn't recall the open directory. I'll try again today to confirm.

It won't recall the selection, but it remembers where to unfold the folders/subfolders to (and resize the window to what you set it to make it all visible.)

That doesn't seem to be true. The directory tree remains unaffected by preset selection.
