Is it not true that the more the drive is tagged that the longer the recovery becomes? We have a similar situation with a expired domain search engine at http://www.findeteer.com in which where the drives have a recovery speed unless the drive keeps getting queried.

We have set it so that no matter what the query rate that the system recovers before it accepts the next query in line.

The only drawback is that when the visitor query rate is high the system seems to slow down and even stop at times because of using this methodology. But this solves drive crashes.

We had to do this because a query may look at 10 million domains to shoot out the results.
