First of all i love this project and i think it’s one of the most interesting use cases for blockchain.
The Storj Team recommends that you should make a new node for every HD. One of my problems is that i have a lot of HDs under 500Gb that i would like to use aswell.
What i don’t understand is why they are not accepting that you just mount more than just one directory to your node. For sure your node would loose reputation if one HD fails but at least you have a longer runtime instead of just configure a new node everytime your space is full and the reputation process begins from start with every new node. Like that you also are not loosing the whole hold back amount if a HD fails and instead you loose only the exact amount the system needs to repair the data from the failed drive.
Wouldn’t that be a better solution?
I’m quite interested what you people think about that.
