Modelbuilder - Building a Batch Repair Mosaic Dataset Paths Tool

I am trying to build a tool in ModelBuilder to batch repair mosaic dataset paths. I know there is an existing tool for this, but I want to set certain pre-defined characteristics for the tool as we always get mosaics with the same incompatible path and need to convert to the same new path every time.

It's been a while since I used ModelBuilder, so I have some general questions/parameters.

  1. Which iterator would you suggest using? It needs to be recursive to get through all subfolders, but also have a wildcard to hunt out the annoying R: path.
  2. The only parameter I need is to select the parent folder containing all the datasets/mosaics which I assume would be done on the iterator rather than the repair path tool, which will be fed the output of the iterator...?
  3. I need all the mosaics to stay where they are, just have the path changed.

I delved into this in Python but had to give up. I'm hoping to build this in ModeBuilder and study the script to understand it better.

It sounded like a simple thing but I've got myself confused. Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you!

sounds like the modelbuilder substitute for

if you need to iteratively go through all subfolders

... sort of retired...
