In regards to people mirroring parabola also requiring more space (as a 
secondary issue to that of running out of space on the server). Isn't 
there a way to partially mirror different parts of parabola either way?

If so, it might be worth reconsidering buying more space on the server, 
as, to me, this still seems preferable to deleting stuff or taking it 
offline completely, even if there are only a few mirrors.

That said, I'm not sure what the parabola funds are like, but hard-disk 
drives are fairly cheap.
