Normally I use rsync or rdiff-backup to copy or move large amounts of files around with validation activated.

I don't know if Nautilus uses some kind of verification on copy or move commands.

At present there is no setting in nautilus for validating copied files.

Nautilus does have a Brainstorm page for ideas so maybe you can add your request there.
