I want to read the file string for a footage item.
This string is listed as "FootageItem file attribute" in http://blogs.adobe.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/48/files/2012/06/After-Effects-CS6-Scripting-G uide.pdf?file=2012/06/After-Ef…

into my composition, the Data Browser shows:
How does the "c:" get munged into "/c/" and how can I get the original string back? I need to extract this string programmatically and make use of it elsewhere, but I don't want to guess how to "demunge" it.
