Hi,

Just a question I thought I would put out there...

For servers (DC's or Exchange or SQL etc) how do people recommend drive
partitioning?

I have heard some place everything on C, some split with OS on C and
applications/data on another and some split C with OS, D with application
binaries and E with data??

I am just trying to understand what is really the best answer, currently our
equipment is based with a large C, which I believe is because people before
me believed that as everything is all so closely tied together, like the
registry on C points to sections on D or e, so if D dies it causes problems
etc??

Any ideas or Microsoft Best Practice guides?
