  • Not possible to change the way WHS handles files.  Your first disk will be partitioned into two, c: and d:..  it should move the data to your sata drives if they are added to the pool after a while though.

  • You should also know that Microsoft recommend that you use your largest disk available as your system disk - for a reason! Your 80GB disk will seriously limit the amount of data that you will be able to transfer to the server, as you will only have a maximum of 40GB as a D drive, which also has to handle the tombstones etc.
