Store relative path names in existing MXD (ArcGIS 10.4)

Greetings, I have a question that really has two parts:


1) Attached is an image of a map properties dialog from one of our mapfiles. This mxd was created in ArcGIS 10.4. As you can see, the option of store relative path names is greyed-out: I can't check or un-check it. This seems to be the case with all of our mxd's. Is there a way this option can be made available?


and secondly,


2) We have probably hundreds of mxd's in our files. Some of them were saved with relative paths when they were made, but many were not. Is it even possible to create a script that can set all mxd's in a directory to save relative paths? Obviously this is only relevant if the first part can be resolved.
