Exchange 2010 Storage Design, single volume or multiple?

We are having 3 Exchange 2010 servers in a single DAG, databases are going to be stored on 6 X 600 GB (15K SAS) internal drives configured as RAID 5, every server will hold passive copies of the other two servers.

My question is: since we are using the same physical drives, does it make any difference if we keep one 3TB Drive (E:) or split it into 3 X 1TB drives (E:, F:,G:)?

What is the recommended configuration and why?

You need to go with option B, carve 3 X 1TB partitions (E, F, G) or anything you want to name it.  This way it will be clean and easy to troubleshoot.
