large number of small files to move

I have a large migration of a single system going from windows to
linux.  We are moving 9 TB and 60 million files.  I am planning on
using rsync to move this data.  Are there any special considerations I
should have in mind when moving this much data and more importantly,
this many small files?

I am mounting the volumes out of fstab like this:
//dss01/f$    /mnt/dss01/f   cifs credentials=/etc/asdf,ro 0 0

And rsync command is:
rsync -rt --delete --stats /mnt/dss01/f /data00

Any ideas?
