New Server Hard Drive configuration

August 02nd, 2010 - 10:34 am ET by Allen Wadsworth | Report spam
Been working with SBS since version 4.5 and with every server I have used the
same hard drive configuration. My primary OS was mirrored on two hard drives
and my Projects/Shared Information has been on RAID 5 drives. Is it good
practice to keep the mirrored drives for the primary OS or is it ok to use a
Raid 5 configuration?
Thanks,
Allen

In my opinion, it is best to have the os mirrored. This way you can break
the mirror before running updates or a service pack and if all goes wrong
you can put the other drive back in.
