If the files are moved (or, as in your case, if the project file is moved to another system) then the links are broken and the project file is no good any more.

The manual wasn't terribly clear and I thought that, for example, I could just drop my Stata project file into a Dropbox folder to share it with my collaborators, but that doesn't appear to be working. So the Stata project manager doesn't somehow internalize the data and do files into one file that I can throw around, correct? I still have to individually drop files into clouds or backups? I was excited about the new project manager function because it seemed to imply that I wouldn't have to do that anymore.
