Need Some Space?

Need Some Space?:

In this case, MySQL dutifully creates copies of the table’s .MYD and .MYI files in the new location, then replaces the originals with symlinks. Hey, presto! You’ve just moved all the bulky bits of the table. And if the path points to a location on a different disk, then you’ve just freed up a chunk of space on the original drive.
