Dear Experts,

Our server has 16 bays,

14 Bay = 300 GB (Date), RAID 50, ~3.3 TB
2 Bay = 146 GB (System) Mirror, 140 GB

Windows 2008 installation is on System drive.  After installation complete, everything changes. system drive takes some of Data drive as you see from the attached image, and Data drive get divided in to two partition, I can’t even separate them.
