When I move files to fit my current directory structure, pieces of the project file, almost always files in the clip bin go away...never to return.  Obviously I don't understand how Camtasia file hierarchy works.  Please direct me to information.

The project files do not contain the actual media files, only references to the files' locations on disk, so, as you mentioned, if you try to move everything the file associations will be broken.

To move your project to another location, I recommend going to "File -> Export project as zip" and then importing the resulting zip file again into your desired new location. This will bring all associated media alongside the project files.

Thanks for using Camtasia!
