My question relates to hardware and exchange. In this scenario I would be running a set of hotswap raid 1 drives: one with exchange and the information store databases and another with transaction logs. If my Information store were to become corrupt and I loaded a backup set of drives with the databases and exchange on them to replace the current set that would be swapped a nightly basis. Would exchange replay the log files onto the older databases from a set of drives that were changed out the day before when it tries to mount the Information store and rebuild the database to its last state? I know this is the case when you reload an information store from a backup utility and remount it but I was wondering if this kind of RAID solution would offer the same benefits.
