Hello All,

First time setting up an SQL Server... Just want to make sure I get the install directories/etc correct... My current server has 3 paritions...  C: is a raid 1 (2x240gb ssd), D: is a raid 1 (2x240gb ssd) and an E: is raid 5 (4x240gbssd)....

Do i have the below correct? Anything I should change?

Data root Directory  = E:
User database directory = E:
User database log Directory = D:
Temp DB Directory = E:
Temp DM log = D:
Backup Directory = C: (assume I can put this on the root partition as its really doing nothing else besides OS?

Just want to make sure I matched those correctly? Any changes you think I should do that would be great.
