1) No. Decentralized Servers without any significant connection
2) Maybe, but the procedure needed a "file-by-file" storage of
about 1-2 Million files
3) I will take a look at one machine today (Thursday) and check
what connections (USB, Firewire, ext.SCSI) are possible
4) Unfortunately I can't check if the servers have this possibility
Maybe I can give someone the task to check this.
A single Hot-swapable drive will be a solution, if possible
at all servers
The first thing comming in my mind was an external (mountable) drive,
as I remember this as possible. And as far as I remember I did it once
with a USB stick.
Still on research :-)
