Configuring Storage

Microsoft recommends that you partition and format only the system partition during Windows installation, and that you exclusively use the NTFS file system (no FAT), and we back them up on this recommendation. The Disk Management snap-in is a much more elegant and efficient way of partitioning and formatting disks and volumes than is Windows Setup, and we recommend that you do as many of your disk management chores as possible after Setup completes.

The chores that you will likely need to perform include partitioning and formatting the rest of the computer's hard disk(s), as well as possibly setting up software-based redundant arrays of independent disks (RAIDs), stripe sets, or mirror sets. In the interest of reducing redundancy (in this book), we refer you to Chapter 17, where these tasks (and others) are covered in detail.
