comment SQL Disk Setup Advice - TempDB, Log DB, Data file placement question
Thanks again... having spent the day monitoring performance ... the thing really is humming along nice - especially over the last single volume for everything raid 5 install. Still I got a lot of good info and education. I appreciate the advice.
