Container Field options

I have a database that has pictures that are stored on an external drive.  Initially the table that has the container fields was setup without the container field options and the picture path locations were provided with a script.

 

I'd like to get a better understanding of what Filemaker Pro will do when I select the container field options;

 

Store container data externally,

Open storage:

 

My question is will this action recreate folder structure of the pictures and store the pictures in the selected location and can I then delete the original picture folders?


My objective is to reduce the size of the database and increase performance.
