Server data and OS best practices
Posted on 2013-06-17
I have gotten some inquiries as to why we keep our Operating system (C: drive) and our programs and data (E: drive) separate. My main reason was so some application file or configuration does not fill up the root volume and shut down the whole server. If an application or configuration fills up the data volume I can still get on the server to correct. I am looking for some hard evidence or best practices to back me up.
