Or even to a non-recording hard drive (spindle) in the system.  Make
sure the drive with your MySQL database (and, likely your root
filesystem) is not used for any recordings.  And, don't have any
RAID/LVM volumes used for recordings using any partitions on the disk
with the MySQL database.  You can then move some recordings off of your
main recording directory after recording for archival (using, i.e.,
myth_archive_job.pl), and when 0.21 is released, you'll be able to
create a directory used for playback but not used for recording with
Storage Groups.
