WHY WE NEED TO KEEP DATA SEPARATED FROM C AND CONSOLIDATED

When windows becomes corrupted

or a update goes bad or you get ransomware or a virus this drive can be wiped clean and the one below can take its place temporarily.  If we did have our data on C and it went bad or corrupt it would be a lot of work to get the data separated off of a sick virus ridden or corrupt drive and on to a different drive.

So data can be easily found and kept track of

You can keep working as normal if you need to use your spare

Or if you have to update to windows 10 this can happen without being so disruptive. This  method and investment in solid state drives will follow you to your new computer systems.   Keeping data all in the same place in your office with peer to peer networking or NAS  file systems makes life much easier in a office.      If you do  save files to C lets make sure your files are  backed up nightly to a data drive.   So if windows does crash on you it wont be so much work to recover those files.
