I have some questions in regards to the best practice for these 7 mailboxes in the default database (which is located on the system drive) Should these mailboxes be located on the system drive Database or should they be moved to a separate database? ![72506-image.png][1] [1]: /api/attachments/72506-image.png?platform=QnA

    They should be in a database thats protected.
    By that I mean, redundancy with a DAG and replicated to other servers or storage that is highly resilient.

    The system drive typically is not sufficient and I would not locate the arbitration or any user mailbox on the default database if its located on the system drive.
