I think keeping one drive (C) for everything avoids problems about
predicting how much room you would need in each of two partitions. In my
google search I see a lot of people underestimated the C (OS drive). See:
You should also think about your backup strategy as having your data on D
drive might simplify this. I have worked at two major companies where they
had Programs and OS on C drive and user docs on D drive. In the far past
limitations of FAT32 were an issue on max partition size, but with NTFS and
later there should be no issue.
