I guess you are stuck with waiting.

.frm, .MYD, .MYI are the normal files for a MyISAM table
.TMD is the temp
.BAK sounds like something you did.

That is not terribly old.

> switch the tables to innodb as this would hopefully reduce problems like this
ALTER TABLE is still an issue with InnoDB. But hopefully it would not be that painful. Switching is a good idea in general. An it _may_ help with this problem. Recommend innodb_file_per_table.

Caution: InnoDB will take up 2x-3x the disk space.

See this for subtle changes you might need in indexes, etc:
