As long as you are not moving files across mount points, you could always do something
cd $SOURCE_DIR && find . -print | cpio -dplm $DEST_DIR
rm -rf $SOURCE_DIR
That will create hard links from one directory to the other so you don't have to worry
about any file corruption since the data is never actually moved around on the disk. It
should also be a whole lot faster than actually moving or copying the data and you don't
have to worry about running out of disk space half way through a copy.
