    2TB SATA 7.2K RPM for data (dont have this much data but there for useage if needed)
    1TB SATA for mid week backups
    1TB SATA for archive of data/Photographs

    Weekend backups done on external NAS drive

    Thanks

    Are those numbers the array size with RAID or individual disks?

    personally i would look to use SCSI/SAS drives over cooking model SATA based drives
    usually the more enterprise level disks have a longer rated life span, also WSUS can be quite disk intensive so you will benfit imo from the faster drives
