Are you moving or copying. You wouldn't want to move a recording in
progress. Also I would recommend using rsync. That way you can stop or
restart without losing your progress in case something happened.
Moving 500 GB can take a while. Also you can keep recording and run
rsync one more time just before you switch to catch any of the latest
