The stroke is a bitmap and exists as pixels on a layer. The paths are a series of linked points with the relationship of those points in 2D space mathmatically stored. Adjusting the path alters the positional relationship between the points on the path. It has no affect of the pixels that were created when you stroked the path.
Think of the path in similar terms to Photoshop guides or the grid. They are not part of the image. Just scalable templates. Does that help?
Thanks for reply.
So this means i can't go back and move or edit the stroke?
How did you create the strokes? WIth »Apply Stroke« or as a Layer Style …?
Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels visible?
