 How can elements that are hosted by elements (wall) from a linked file maintain the host and not become orphaned?

 
Our office is working on a Revit Architecture (2011) model with worksets.  Electrical is the responsibility of another team member (different firm, different office - no intranet). Shared Coordinates are derived from the Architecture model. Each day we upload a COPY of our Central Architectural model to our ftp site.  Electrical firm downloads the copy to their server.  Electrical firm then hosts electrical elements (wall outlet) on a wall from our recently downloaded Architectural model. All models keep the same name and are placed in the same relative folder.
 
Next day...same upload/download process occurs.  However, Electrical firm looses (orphaned) the hosting of their electrical elements established the previous day to our architectural model - even if the host wall never changed.

The problem sounds like they are deleting the link each time.  Once the file is linked, it should never be deleted.  Just reload from and pick where the updated copy is.

I certainly agree with WWHub, it most definitely sounds like they are removing the link, then relinking, and I am only assuming they are using face based elements as opposed to wall, floor, ceiling hosted elements. Though thinking about this too...as the architect are you deleting entire walls and recreating them also? I have a feeling it could be a combination. I have seen this happen on many MEP models when the architect has deleted the ceiling and then completely recreates it as opposed to changing the type or modifying it. Just my 2cents. Cheers.

Thanks for the comments.

I thought it might be an issue of deleting a link then reloading the new updated link (same name, same file location).  I assume the link and the necessary hosting is lost as soon as the link is deleted.  We will try "Reload From..." instead.  OR regarding the process of the Elec firm obtaining daily revisions from other disciplines outside of the office (arch., civil, etc.) could, they simply overwrite the previous days linked models (arch. model hosting elec. elements) - same name, same location PRIOR to opening up their Elec. model?  Might try this as well.

I understand the issue deleting walls and thus orphaning objects regardless of how models are linked or reloaded.  Your suggestion for changing wall types vs. deleting and re-modeling sounds like a good method of practice. 

thanks,
