When I went to Exchange training I was taught that a best case scenario
would be to have different drives (physically, not just mapped) for the
different parts. For Instance;

*         C Drive for OP System & needed programs (Exchange, antivirus,
antispam etc.)

o        With a mirrored drive

*         D Drive for paging file

o        Doesn't necessarily need a mirror

*         E Derive for Exchange logs

o        Raid 5

*         F Drive for stores

o        Raid 5


Our main Exchange box has two 9.6 Gig's for "C" (mirror), two 9.6 Gig's
for "D" (mirror), three 18gig's for "E" (Raid 5), and an external box
with 7 36GIG's for "F" (Raid 5).

This way I'm redundant, as fast as I can be, yet not placing too much
stress on any one drive. I know this doesn't work with everyone but it's
been good to us.

Hey guys,


We're about to begin deployment of exchange in our organisation. Is it

recommended that when installing exchange you do it on a seperate

partition to the system and also is it better to create another one to

place the logs on?


I was planning on having a partition for the mailboxes a seperate

partition for the public folders and a seperate partition for the logs.

Does this sound ok to you guru?
