I need this!
Man Microsoft just stepped up to the plate and hit a massive Home Run here, booyah!

Wonder if they will make it easier with this version?
Dude everyone installs their server on one drive (the application server) and puts their data on another drive, or multiple drives in RAID, that way the can protect it from data loss... The OS may have to get reinstalled, a drive can fail, too much risk keeping everything on the same drive...
Sorry that you set this server up bad, definitely want to rethink ahead of the game here when you build your new server. Edited by _GTech - 3/20/12 at 12:45pm
