This would be very tricky. The largest files, naturally, are the
databases themselves. While you can set the locations of individual
databases, IMHO this would be a maintenance nightmare. (Even if you
had symlinks to remind you where the other files were.) Of course if
your project requires more than one set of databases, it would be
much easier (and logical) to split them.

If you do want to split the databases, I'd probably put the word
databases on one drive and the document databases on the other.

See <> -- there's a configuration
attribute for each database, along with database_base and
database_dir for setting parts of them all at once.
