Quickest Way to transfer large amount of small files?

What would be the best way (fastest possible way) to transfer a website that contains many small files from one server to another?

In this case, the type of site would be an image hosting site.

Approx 300GB worth of files, lots of smaller image files.

What would be the most efficient way for me to transfer the site's content from one server over to another?

Thanks

You could rsyc it. Transferring files from different servers to cpanel is easy if you have root access with cpanel.

Most of hosting providers offer free migration service. You can check with them. This will save time and energy.

The best and the most secure transfer would be through scp over ssh.

I would suggest tarring it up and then ftp to new site so you use there bandwidth.
