    Hi Everyone,

    I just finished migrating Windows Server 2003 STD to SBS2011 STD.

    I ordered a server from Dell and it came pre-configured with RAID-5 on 4x 1TB disks. It has 2x Virtual disks configured.

    After building the OS, I see C: 120GB, (DATAPART0) D: 1TB and (DATAPART1) E:1.7TB .

    I see DATAPART1 already has Program Files folder with MSSQL installed.

    This server will have the following roles and services:

    File Server (approx. 500GB of data)
    Exchange 2010

    Should I keep the current configurations or have it in RAID 1+0 or RAID 0+1.

    What are your recommendations for this setup? Thank you.
