Move images from 1 exim to another

I have imported 60,000 product with 60,000 images to a /dev store
I now want to get these products into /live store, but without haveing to re uplaod all the images from local.

Can I move the exim/images directory from the /dev into /live and just use the same filepath in the csv uplaad file of products

and will it be quicker then uploading via csv image path https://www.patchtoimage

Note that in the preset you can upload zip archive with images
