This is a very wise decision and shows that you understand good hard drive management.

If you ever need to format and reinstall windows in the future, all your important data is safely tucked away on the other partition.

I keep a minimum of 50 gigs on my primary partition (/:C) for my Windows 7 install which should also leave you plenty of room for any third party program installs.

Regards

Practice good hard disk management and you will never be afraid of the word format in future. Glad you chose to store data on your D drive.
