It sounds like your storage groups would have been configured to use
/appl/media4/recordings . If so, then you shouldn't have any
problems--MythTV will realize that /appl/media4/recordings directory
doesn't exist, so it will stop using that directory (completely ignoring
the entry in the storage group).
If, however, /appl/media4 is in a storage group, that directory likely
exists--but is the point on the parent file system where you would
normally mount the not-usable file system. This would be very bad
because MythTV would continue to use that directory--but it would write
to the wrong file system, so you could potentially fill up that file
system (assuming it's the root file system, this is a very bad thing).
So, I'd recommend just going into mythtv-setup and verifying that
/appl/media4 isn't listed and only sub-directories of /appl/media4 are
Otherwise, MythTV doesn't care if a file system with recordings actually
exists or not--other than being unable to actually play back the
recordings from that file system.
