    *Dips HDD on salt*
    I'll let it absorb some sodium for a few days and i'll report back with the results :D
    I hope it goes from 500GB to over 2TB but anything over 500GB is pretty dandy.

    people should not take this with a pinch of salt :cautious: Don't go shaking salt on your hard drive thinking your going to expand the size :shifty: also dont go trying to disolve this into any kind of liquid or you will more than likely disintergrate yourself, Sodium Cloride will only vapourize at a temp of 1413°C :ninja:
