Exchange 2007 Storage Groups

I have Exchange 2007 standard with one storage group with a database that is nearly max'd out.  My thought is to add a few more storage groups and distribute users among all of the stores to regain some database capacity.  Are there any drawbacks or considerations to this idea?

Positive side of having more than one storage group is faster restore

Negative side more load on disk.

In all cases it is a good practice to have 2 or 3 storage groups with one database in each store.

what is your storage configuration ?

I have 1 storage group with 1 database writing to a separate volume of the server than the OS.  The additional storage groups that I want to create will write to this same disk unfortunately.  We only have about 75 users so I don't anticipate any big performance issues.

It is definitely a raid volume, not positive whether it's 1 or 5

in both cases for 75 users I wouldn't worry at all
