I never thought about it before, but FCX allows sort of an infinite expansion of your media storage for a library. When you Modify Settings for storage location, note that it tells you, "Newly imported or generated media, cache files, and library backups will be stored in the locations you choose. Existing media and backup files remain in their original locations."

So, when one storage location becomes full, you can specify another one, which will contain all NEW media, from that point in time, forward. As each drive fills up, add another and "Modify Settings." At the end of the job, you might add one more big drive and "Consolidate" the whole job onto it.
