I might be old school in my thinking but I was about to supply a client a server running Windows Server 2008.
I was going to setup a C drive with Mirrored RAID (1)
And then a D drive with raid 5 where the majority of data will be kept?

The server will be running MSSQL not exchange. It will be the only server on a network of 10.

Is this still the good way to do things? Or should I just make the entire partiation RAID 5.
Will be using SCSI disks.
