I am replacing my existing server with a new server that will function as a 2003 domain controller and 2003 Exchange server.  It came with two hard drives configured as a RAID 1 mirror.  This server supports only 15 users and will also contain data files.  I would like to create only 1 partition on the hard drives, because I then won't have to worry about running out of hard drive space on the C: anytime soon.  However, I have always been told to create a separate partition for the data.  Should I do this or is it OK to leave only 1 partition?
