Remember, moving or renaming files in the File Manager won't update the paths of any entities as they are stored in the database columns, and the file manager is nothing to do with the database. It only shows the files on your application disks.
You need to manually update the paths of entities whenever you rename or move the file. So be cautious.
E.g., If you give an audio file link for the question attachment as /path/audio/sample.mp3 in the question editor, you rename it as /path/audio/toefl.mp3 in the file manager. The file renames, but it won't update the audio link of the question. You need to edit the question and update the audio link with the new path.
