At Devcon I attended the "COR008 - FileMaker Server 12 Configuration Best Practices" session and one of the recommendations was to configure your disk as follows:



Setup in 3+ partitions

– OS and Applications

– Live Hosted Files

– Backups and Logs


I was just wondering if anyone knows of any resources that go into a little bit more detail as to why this is a good idea?


I have a reasonably good handle on why this is a good idea, but our system administrator is wanting to see a white paper or something similar with justifications as to why to configure the server this way.
