Hard drives are getting full time for an upgrade to the trusty old Plex server, but the cost of drives are high at the moment what other options do I have?

Running a plex server is great, having all your movies and music accessible anywhere on pretty much any device is great.

The only downside is you eventually fill up your hard drives and need to expand.

This is even more so when you start ripping Blu-rays they take up a fair amount of space (let alone 4k UHD discs), I'm currently running at 58tb of space on my drive pool but it's starting to feel a little tight, the only problem is hard drives seem to have gone up a bit in price since I last added a couple of drives.

Maybe time to grab a couple of these and shuck them (that's removing the drives from the cases for use elsewhere).
