What will happen ?? The source will > remain the same ? The files that have been moved should appear in the destination directory and not appear in the soucre/original directory. Files that have NOT been moved or partially moved should NOT appear in the destination directory and should appear in the source/original directory. mv is a file by file case so when 1 file gets copied to the destination directory, it gets deleted from the source. Then mv moves on to the next file. I would recommend a cp (-dpRvi, for example) and if everything's OK, then delete the original files. rsync can also be handy ;) I don't usually use mv command since if there's some corruption during the copy ... you might end up losing files (unless you have a good backup ;).
