Will moving data from one filesystem to another affect current software installation

Here we have concern. We have a IBM software installed in a server S1 in the location : /opt/IBM.
In this server S1, we have /opt file system in local disk. We don't have any option to increase the file system there.
We have created a separate /opt/IBM_NEW file system with 10GB in S1 server.
You have to copy the data from /opt/IBM to /opt/IBM_NEW.
After that we will remount the /opt/IBM_NEW to /opt/IBM.
Please let me know if moving whole folder under /opt/IBM to other point and moving it back, will impact the current software installation there..

thanks in advance!!

The question is more how will you transfer the content? using cp? or cpio/tar? or backup-restore.Will users be connected? etc...
Properly done it should not have an impact after reorganization...
