You didn't read the link, as it answers that question.

30,000 tps == 5.85 MiB/s (30000 tps * 0.2 KiB) == 493 GiB/day (5.85 MiB/s * 86400 s)

If u mean SPV mode... I'm talking about the full mode. Half a terrabyte is the lowest bound assuming transactions r very small. My HDD will be filled completely within 2 days. Maybe it's just my problem.

Yeah, that would be a pain. I only have 8 terrabytes in my main server right now. But chances are that by the time we get to that point, 1 terabyte will cost as much as 100gigs do today. Also, don't forget that pruning will keep things from growing too fast, and many of the transactions in the new block will clear out transactions in the old blocks.
But, yes, in the long run, this will have to be handled by data centers of wealthy hobbyists (such as bitcoin early adopters), while most users will just use SPV.
