I2PSnark handles inaccessible storage dir badly

Description

On startup, if I2PSnark cannot find the configured storage directory, it fails to start. Making the storage directory available and then starting I2PSnark causes abnormal disk access and takes a very long time to initialize.

In the event that the configured storage directory isn't found, it might be better to fallback to the default storage location and add a notification to the screen log that the configured location is inaccessible etc.
