Fred, Partitioning on Windows, at least, appears to be more of a preference than a best-practice. I don't know of any quantifiable benefit from partitioning alone. BUT, putting Windows/apps/pagefile on a RAID 0 boot array consisting of 2+ Raptors? That would make a significant difference. -- Charles -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Fred Jones Sent: Sunday, June 22, 2008 11:10 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Windows Server Partitioning One of my clients hired a host who setup for us a dedicated Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition machine. The machine has one hard disk with 1 terabyte of space. They set it up as one partition. [...] The question is, is this enough of an issue that I should request the host to repartition?
