that in mind if you are expecting a lot of data to index, putting the index files on a
different drive may be a life-saver.
Now that you’ve taken a glance at the Data Location tab and confirmed where the index
files will go, let’s move on with the installation. Go back to the Server Type tab and make
absolutely certain that you’ve selected the Complete option. Keep in mind that, for some

A Quick Check of Installation Changes
During the Standalone installation, we checked to see what happened during the install. So, as a
quick recap, before moving on to configuring SharePoint, here’s a reminder of what happened.

assigned any service accounts for them), as you can see in Task Manager in Figure 3.6. (In the
figure below, notice that the accounts of these services are not listed in the Group column. In
the Services console, they’re temporarily assigned Local System, but we have to change that
before they are started.)
In IIS nothing has changed yet (which is standard; IIS doesn’t get populated until the
configuration phase), and no security groups have been created, but the SharePoint root has been
created and at least partially populated (Figure 3.7).
