Choosing where I put the Alfresco repository

I have installed Alfresco under Mac OS X Server and am running some tests on it at present. I was wondering whether anyone has experimented with putting the repository onto a separate volume. As far as I can see the Alfresco data is stored in two places: /opt/alfresco/alf_data and in mysql. So, if I want to keep the data repository for my CMS on a separate volume, can I do this by moving these folders/files (say, /opt/alfresco/alf_data) to the other volume and putting in a hard link? I think I have more of a problem with mysql as I can't see where the data is stored (all of the executables seem to be in /usr/bin but there does not seem to be a data folder). I am using the Mac OS X Server built-in MySQL (v4.1.1.3a).

The reason I want to do this is that I don't have a great deal of free space on the main volume, and I want to have a clear and easy source file location to identify what needs backing up.

Any help appreciated.

Ian.
