Magix if its a new hard drives for space you need just say, easy as that. Put up a paypal button somewhere on your sites and you'll soon have money for one or two i'm sure. Everyone knows your sites are

Understand about the ftp but that could be many months away before DATs update release. Maybe with new hard drives new ftp online sooner.
If space is not hard drives, still paypal will still come in handy to reach the space target needed.
