I can think of a few different ways of doing this, depending on how much free space you have on both drives.
I am assuming that both drives are currently formatted as NTFS with one partition each.
Resize the partition on the ssd to free up 20-30 GB of free space.
Create a new primary partition about 24-28 GB, assuming you have 30GB free, and format it ext4. This will be your root (/) mount point.
With the remaining 2-4 GB, make it an extended partition, then a logical partition in that partition and format it as swap. This is your swap partition.
On the 1TB drive, see if you have about 120 or so GB free. If you do, I'd resize that partition to free up that space.
Create a new partition in that free space, format it as ext4, and set the mount point as /usr. this is where your user programs, including ones you compile yourself, will be installed.
The final thing, in this setup is where you want to put the boot loader. You can put it on the primary hard drive, usually /sda, or you could specify the partition that has linux installed, it would look something like /sda#, the # being whichever partition Linux is installed on.
I'd recommend the first way, unless you know how to get the Windows boot loader to recognize the linux install. When I tried the technical preview, Windows 10 was able to see my linux install and create a boot entry for it, so there should be way.
That way might be a bit more complicated but I believe it would work better in the long run.
On the 1TB drive, free up about 120-200GB of space, resize that partition giving you the 120-200GB space.
Create a new primary partition, leaving 2-4GB free, and format as ext4, then set it as your root (/) mount point. This partition will hold everything, the OS data, your user data, downloads, everything.
With the remaining 2-4GB free space, make an extended partition, then a logical partition, and format it as swap.
Again, choose where you want the boot loader installed, this time either /sda or /sdb# (whatever partition # Linux is installed at).
This way should be simpler to do. I apologize if this seems very confusing or even intimidating.
I'd recommend having a backup copy of whichever version of Windows you have to re-install should anything get messed up. Maybe even find a downloadable copy of Windows and copying down your Windows key somewhere.
I hope this helps you some.
