Where is best to install Exchange 2007 program files: on the same volume (RAID 1) as the OS or on a sperate volume where the database (RAID 10) will reside.  In the past (Exchange 2003) I have installed the Exchange program on the same volume as the database with no problems, but would like to know what is optimal with EX 2007.

For transaction logs is RAID 1 better then RAID 10 even though I can put the database and log files on two seperate RAID 10 volumes
