    Hi All,

    I've looked through out this newsgroup but haven't seen any other posts on
    this particular subject (maybe I missed them). Anyway, I've just received
    my new server and am about to start the journey of migrating from our
    current SBS 2003 standard (not R2) to SBS 2008 Standard. I'm looking for
    suggestions on how to partition my hard disk drive. I've got 750 GB to play
    with in a Raid 1 configuration. Any suggestions on what size the partitions
    should be a how many? I know that the system drive min. is 60 GB but I was
    thinking more along the lines of 100 GB. I would also like to put the
    Exchange Store in its own partition (size?). Then the rest would be user
    data files. Any other suggestions are appreciated. One other question,
    I've noticed with our new server some documentation on using bit-locker on
    the server. I don't know if this is included but what are your thoughts on
    implementing this technology? Thanks for any and all suggestions.
