Well we are all the same boat, but I try to find a workflow rather than just feel upset.

Ripple training has good tutorials explaining how if you create a camera archive then you can choose only to import the segment that you use. I also use Final Cut Library Manager to reduce bulk. If you have a 2 year long project then basically you either allocate the HDD space, or wear the time to re create, maybe over-night exports?

I use a Promise Pegasus TB box for Libraries and current projects and store archived media on a slower Synology NAS. But that's just me. Hard drives are no longer that expensive, you can get a USB3 SATA cradle and buy a dedicated disk for the big project, and when not required just unmount it and stick in the cupboard.

Just some ideas...

I also use a Promise Pegasus setup.
I have HD's coming out of my ears, no probs there.
I *am* trying to find workflow solutions.
Thanks for reading and contribiting, though, and hopefully logic will prevail as far as a future update of FCPX goes.
