Not really. Unless everything is in the same root directory and the sub-directories are relative to the AE project file, this is hopeless, more or less. Perhaps you can find some script over at AEnhancers or similar sites, that takes care of the relinking and folder management, but that's probably the extend of the magic you can expect to get from within AE...
I don't understand why you can't just move the folder without success.
My jobs are always self-contained in an individual job folder. I move them from drive to drive all the time without any reconnection issues. I simply drag them using the Finder window, then delete the original once the copy is finished.
What process are you using?
After you have moved the entire folder, double-click one of the missing items in the Project panel and locate that file. Unless you have made a really weird folder structure, AE should be able to find the other missing files.

Yeah, AE is the best as relinking moved files. I wish other programs were as smart about relinking moved source footage.
