There are pro and con arguments to a single or 2 partitions. It's mostly personal preference and habit.
I tend to use 2 partitions on my primary drive if I have only 2 drives, like this:
Drive 1: C for Windows and D for data
Drive 2: Backup only
But if I have a 3 drive system, I do it like this:
Drive 1: C: Windows only
Drive 2: D: Data only
Drive 3: E: Backup only
If you do use 2 partitions, you may sooner or later wish you had made one of the partitions a different size. In that sense, a single partition makes more efficient use of the total space available.
I assume you have a second drive of some type for backup purposes.
