Change genesis block to another specified block number #fabric #fabric-questions

Hello,

I am wondering if there is any possible solution to point the genesis block to any decided block number. While working with certain use-case which involves storing of large number of transactions into ledger, it is observed that after sometime the disk space gets filled up and there is no other way rather than to bootstrap the network (i.e clean the data and build the network again). So is there a way where we can point out the genesis block to some other block number eg. block no: 5000, so that every peer in the network will consider this as the starting block and the data of first 5000 blocks can be stored safely in an external disk decoupled from the blockchain network.
Please let me know any possible approaches.
