The MYI file contains only indices, which are pretty much disposable. The MYD contains the
actual data, and is what myisamcheck will be reading in order to salvage as much data as
possible. It will basically try to copy every record into the temp file, then switch out
the files and do a full reindexing run. It's not a bad idea to have a copy of your
original MYD file, just in case the repair doesn't quite yield what you'd hoped.
