So, suppose you have an AE project and it is in Projects/AE/ and it references footage (music) that is in Projects/Music/

Then suppose you back up the Projects folder by copying it to a backup hard drive. What music does the backed up project reference? The original? Or the copied?

It looks for the file path. If you can PRECISELY replicate that file path, AE will find it. If you can't, but you know where it is, you can navigate to the file when AE sez, "Hey, this file's missing".
