Never heard of steam mover to be honest. Is it something that Valve supports/owns? If it is a 3rd party tool I would be careful with it. It may work fine, but there is always a chance of it breaking something if it isn't officially supported. Not that it would be to big a deal, you would just have to re-download games.

You can uninstall and reinstall the games you want to move in the desired location, Steam Cloud will take care of your saved games.

Valve does not provide any tool to move games from one place to another as far as I know of.
