I just said I'd think about it.
If something doesn't work, or breaks mid-way, with copy the files are all still in the original location.
Permissions and ownership change to the copying user's.
If it's the same user in the from and to locations, then I'd probably use mv too, depending on how many files, and whether there's a recent .snapshot available as backup, or another backup.
mv is faster and does not use any more disk space; copy doubles the disk space used, at least temporarily.
cp (without -p) would change modification date-time to when copied; mv should preserve the originals...
