No! Don't use the same drives for recording/media with OS / database / swap,
keep recordings on separate disks to those that get hit hard for
intermittant other activities. You need good throughput on your recording
drives and you don't want the heads of the disks going crazy trying to
satisfy a lot of media read and write requests while also doing a scheduler

Keep the os/database/swap on a sepaprate small (40gb) drive possibly ssd if
you have the budget.

Please excuse brevity and pistakes this email was composed on a mobile

Thanks and best regards,
