Not quite. For one, the data doesn't leave the office; it simply resides on my workstation, where I can do things with it and not risk trashing "live" data in the process.
For another, *I* accrue no particular benefit from doing this - like, say, interest payments, but they do. Third, if anything, it's actually a net inconvenience to me, since I could be using those drives elsewhere, for my own purposes, but, frankly, I need the space to get my work done and this was the only way to achieve that at the time.
So, since they're not out anything... in fact, they're actually benefiting, and since I'm not gaining anything (apart from the ability to get my job... that is, *their* work, done) in what way is it comparable to your example, or something that should be any concern to anyone, as long as if-when I do take the drives home, I wipe them clean, or at least, anywhere the company data is stored?
'Course, that said, I also happen to be the keeper of offsite tape backups, which contain most of this data anyways, and that was *explicitly* decided by the company - so using my drives at work isn't much of a risk, when I'm being handed the backup tapes which contain most of this stuff anyhow, to take offsite and store in a nice, safe place, like, say, my safe deposit box.
-- MS, because work should be measured by effort, rather than result.
