comment Windows 7 corrupting XP drive?
The ACL thing may also be the issue - both drives have files that are lets say "owned" by the domain administrator - this may have confused things somewhat. I've recommended he wait until w7 is released properly before using it again on his machine.

comment Windows 7 corrupting XP drive?
One thing that may have caused the issue was the user was using NTFS folder names to mount drives - That's the only thing I can see that may cause an issue but w7 also seems to support this and I have a very similar set up at home except w7 and xp coexist on the same drive - maybe the fact that the drive wasn't present during install caused w7 to get confused - although I'd hate to think w7 corrupts any xp disks just because it didn't know about them during install.

define performance? As in speed increase or space increase? You probably wouldn't notice any speed increase but would definitely find the spare bytes useful! :-p

Not sure what happens during the interim period of updating the DNS caches around the world :-p

Essentially we're moving server but keeping the domain name and don't want any down time :-p

Nope; there is only 1 domain name. The domain is registered in the UK but points to the US nameserver
