    It's entirely up to you. With large drives, I like to divide up a 256GB partition for windows and the rest as a storage. This way if I reinstall windows I don't have to copy things back over. Having said that, I haven't reformatted in a while so it really wouldn't make a difference and would probably make more sense to just do a single c:

    No difference in speed either way. All your preference.

    Well yes as mentioned earlier it is a good cut out a partition for your OS C:, the main reason for this is to make Back Up images of your OS fast to create and fast to Restore. Also, your OS won't get bogged down with DATA files. The speed of your Computer depends on a quick response from your OS, especially with Spinners. 256GB is a good size partition for your OS, I actually use 300 Gb myself. My Dell has a 1TB 970 Evo split into 1 OS and 2 DATA portions C: E: and F: each approx 300 GB my D: is the 512GB that came with my dell its a 2300 length card and I have a 2nd slot that length.
    MY Asus G752VY has a m.2 Nvme 512GB 860 Pro C:; a 1 TB SATA 850 Pro 2.5 and is split into D:E:F This all works for me.
    In the long run its what you want. Back up is very important and you want the maximum Speed from your OS.
