I ended up with a 1tb hdd with nothing on it.
So, I assume I can tell windows (installed on the SSD) to install everything else to the HDD but I dont know how to do that. I could put things like pictures there manually.
Do it like I would and take your 1tb drive and break it down into 3 seperate partitons.
One for back up files and os back up images, one for the os to use for resource and the other to move programs into a seperate folder on the partition.
325gb's in size for each partition may do it, but figure out whats best for you.
I recommend you give acronis a try:
Hard disk drive management software, partitioning manager and partition recovery utility
