No 'Point of Interest' on Camera

I imported a multi-layered PSD file into after effects "as a composition". Sometime last night, I must have changed the name of one of the folders while on my Mac's Finder app within the area where I keep my project, and it caused my project to lose track of the individual LAYERS within my imported composition. Am I explaining this well enough?

I definitely know how to replace lost footage or files, so long as they are not in COMP format. Anyone's suggestions are GREATLY appreciated!
