Hi,

When i install sql server it always installs the log and data files of all the system databases into the same directory - how can i split these out - so i can put the system datafiles and logs into different directories

thanks

Hi, hraja77

But really there is no benefit of moving master or msdb log files to separate disk. These databases do not change often, so you will not improve performance. On the other hand, moving tempdb to separate drive CAN help.
