Why partition a single volume into C: and D: drives?
Posted on 2004-11-18
I just got a new server, with 400G in a single hardware RAID volume. It came partitioned with a 12G C: Drive, and the rest in a D: drive. I've always despised partitioning a single disk this way (C: always runs out of space) and I thought it was a dead practice now that the NTFS supports large enough partitions. Is there any reason or advantage to partitioning separate C: & D: drive on a single RAID volume? (Windows Server 2003)
