Nice to meet you, *****!
It doesn't matter where the apps and data are stored on C or D, it should work fine. Do you have any issues with some apps?

I just got the computer yesterday. After loading most of my data I checked and it shows only 31 GB of space left in the 256 SSD. After I use this up will it automatically start saving to the D: 1TB data drive. I am 77 years old and not at all computer savy. I don't want to lose photos and genealogy data I began saving since 1988 on 5 1/2 floppys on a old Tandy 1000.

Yes
The division into C and D does not affect the operation of applications in any way. Many applications that are installed on the D drive store the files they need on the C drive, and this is normal.

Thanks I haven't encountered this before. All my data has been on one drive in the past.
