Working with a partitioned drive

Last Modified: 2015-10-28
My ASUS ZENBOOK UX32VD has a partitioned SSD; that "must remain partitioned".  

Where do I install programs, so data access with be seamless?  I tried installing programs on C: and putting data on D: but that created a mess so I'm starting over; from the computer's OOB state.

Where do I start in order to avoid the issues I created the first time?  What should I be doing when I install programs etc.?  I will be upgrading to Win10, which I expect I should do first; after setting up Chrome, so I can dl it.
