  • To answer the sencond part of your question: WHS installation creates a 20G partition for the OS. The remainder is for data. Since you appear to be doing a new build, MS recommends that you use the largest drive you have available as the drive for initial installation. I recall reading this in one of MS's white papers on their WHS site. It has to do with data balancing and how the drive extender technology works in WHS.
