Junior DBA here and looking for suggestions on install with the following set up. I will have RAID 10, but partitioned drives. ( IT administrator ) holds key to server and demands this set up. I was going to split up like this: C:\ OS/Binaries D:\ Log files E:\ Temp DB G:\ Backups R:\ Data S:\ Data T:\ Data Because partitioned drives does splitting up data on three drives make any difference with performance? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated considering circumstances! Thanks.
