I appreciate the help. I'm going to see what happens. I've been wanting
to upgrade the hardware for quite some time, so maybe this will be my

So it would be best to have a separate hard drive just for your
recordings, correct? If I had a smaller hard drive for the OS/mysql and
a large dedicated drive for video/recording storage, theoretically that
would/could fix the IOBOUND issue?

Of course it's not 100% that this is what is causing the issues on the
recordings, but it very well could be and IOBOUND errors are not good
