Here's a not bad little pros and cons discussion on partitioning in 2020

Short answer - it's 2020, except for a few specific cases - just don't.

may god have mercy on those foolish enough to go into a Microsoft forum for advice.

this one was a pretty good example of why.

The April patch release crippled my win10 install rather nicely - couldn't load images from File Explorer and couldn't update at all from the Store. Had to reinstall.

Data separation worked just fine. In spite of the author's claim, you're more likely to get a borked windows install than a failure of your drive and backup.

I have my OS and pgms on C and my data is on D all the way up through the alphabet.

I have data separation, I don't need the unnecessary partitioning of my C drive to accomplish that.
