    What kind of RAID disks attached to that server?
    Can you find out from your storage people to get information, otherwise look at Computer Management on that server and get information.

    There are 5 disk on server and i have decided to congifure it like this:
    Firstly i will add a new disk and i will configure three mirrored volume (RAID 1 ) the first one will hold OS ,the second will hold databases and the last one will hold backups.
    Thanx for your replies
