Storing information on one partition is not only risky, but it also leads to clumsy organization of your work.
Most people find it hard to partition (divide into segments) their hard disk, and therefore store their data on the same location as the windows installation. This is very risky: in case of a computer crash it might be hard for you to recover your data.
The windows partition (C :) is a very “active partition.” Software store and manipulate data stored on this Partition. This usually leads to disorganization of your work.
As software write data on your computer, some may create new folders on location which you have stored your data, and while some folder name may merge, for example “New folder” (most software create new folders named “New folder” by default. Therefore if you have a folder by name new folder in the libraries…), some of the software may write data on the location for which you may have stored other types of data.
It may become clumsy and hard to find the written data, or even worse your data.
