Er, this is fine if you're building a new box (and if you're using
simple IDE drives) but rather less so if you've exceeded the capacity on
an existing system and/or you're using SCSI drives.

Yes capacity is cheap, but /adding/ capacity is rather less so - if
there's space you can drop in another drive (which may in turn give you
heat problems) but you've still got to manage allocation of storage to
the new drive. If there isn't space then you're talking about adding in
another box (rather less cheap) or transferring the data from old to new
- slow and the accountants won't be happy about writing off the old

In addition you have to worry about the cost of the time taken to
perform any of the above.

Not as funny as it might seem )-:
