I think, for a start, that the bottom of the disk is very dark. Perhaps
you should remove the shadows of the arrows in order to avoid that. I
would like it better if the arrows kind of wrapped up the hard disk, and
each was of a different color.
Now, for the smaller versions, you will have to manually edit your icon
for it to fit your taste.
