Maybe I'm old school, but I've used midnight commander and screen to do stuff like this several times in the past and it works great.  

While nothing is going to be blazingly fast copying from disk to disk, this method is definitely faster than working with the krusader container.


Also, copying is going to be significantly faster than moving, because copying only involves writing to 1 disk + parity, moving involves writing to 2 disks and the thrashing involved as parity has to update for both written disks. Plus, when you copy, you can remove the smaller disks with the data intact as a good backup in case something happens.
