Windows 7: WHS 2011 Config Question

03 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
WHS 2011 Config Question

I am assembling parts for my new Home Server 2001 system. I currently have three drives and a RAID controller card. The case I am using has slots for 4 HDDs, so here's my question:

Would you choose option A or B?

A: Four identical drives in RAID5, with a partition created for the OS and a second large partition created for the data storage

B: One smaller drive just for the OS, and then 3 drives in an array on the RAID controller card for storage
