The mount point for that drive is probably filling up though.  MythTV
has no knowledge of drives, just SG directories.  So, if you mounted
drive4 at /Media/Drive4, I would venture to say you are just filling
up the drive that the mountpoint exists on.

Nope - if it is already unmounted, then myth already does not see it.
