The dialog gives you the option to move the file into the media directory
(all references to the file in the GEDCOM will be updated)

Before moving to the Media directory, the file name is stored in the GEDCOM as a link to the external file
C:\work\augean\images\herman 44.jpg
This is a very fragile link, which can easily be broken if external file is moved.

Users are encouraged to copy all files to the media directory
The file name is then
MEDIA_DIRECTORY\herman 44.jpg
which is directly inside the augean project.

Using File > Backup ... the project and the media directory can be backed up
