The only groups that get included in freespace calculations are ones 
that get recorded to. That means 'Default', 'LiveTV', and any other 
non-special groups you define on your own. If no livetv paths are 
defined, livetv gets stored in the default paths. If no default paths 
are defined, it drops back to a compiled in '/mnt/store/'.
