When you copy or move files to another location the modification changes
which makes srscheck believe that there is a new version of the databank.

there is a special flag "-t" for srsbuild:

srsbuild -t databankName

sets the internal date of the indices to the current time so - if this 
happened after a 'move' - srscheck thinks the indices are current.
unfortunately this does not affect the link indices ...but this don't
yet have the indexing time internally - so it is safe to do

touch *databankName*.lnk
