By increasing the surface area of hard disk there is an increase of data storage. Do you think whether there is any negative impact of increasing surface area as well?

Yes, by increasing the surface area of hard disk there is an increase of data storage negative impact of increasing surface area as well As a greater amount of magnetic media can reside on the hard surface of the disk also because the surface area of the disk is increased by increasing the number of platters.

Increasing the surface area clearly increases the amount of data that can reside on the disk as more magnetic media no resides on disk but it might have some drawbacks like increased seek time in case only one disk platter is being used.
