Thanks, I will look into the rsync command. I would like to mention that in
the script I posted above that the mount point for the destination is at
/data so that as mentioned earlier the move will fail if the directory is
not mounted. Also, the script adds the slashes to the path in case they
were not specified when the script was called. I will also look into the
ionice and size allocation.
