Re: Are conventional hard drives nearing their limits?...

Back in 1990, hard drives reached the physical limits of platter density. Seriously. I worked for Control Data / Seagate in the day and remember a company meeting where they announced it. 12GB was going to be the most they'd every be able to get on a 5.25" full height drive. Crystal storage was going to be the next generation of storage.

Hard drives are still here. They've continued to find ways of defying the laws of physics and there's no end in sight.
