One SSD on a new laptop is it ok or best not to partition it?

I plan on imaging it every day or every week. Though really don't need to image the data files.

That why I was thinking if I partition OS just to 100 GB then leave the rest for data ?

Drive/SSD is 512 GB.


No they do not have a lot of data.


My only worry is 100 GB enough for Windows 11 Home as time goes on ?

I'd just make 2 partitions with the C: OS partition around 150GB.

Imaging it every day seems a bit excessive for most common laptop uses. Maybe near that makes sense in the beginning of setting everything up, but after that point, weeks to a month or so has been plenty for me, with user generated data backed up more frequently than that.
