My System Specs

Default SSD+HDD

Hello fellow forum members,
Recently i built my first ever pc. I installed my Crucial M4 SSD 128gb and my WD Black Caviar HDD 1TB. I have windows on the SDD and i directed all the libraries (Contacts, desktop, downloads, favorites, links, documents, music, pictures, videos, saved games, and searches) to my HDD.
I have three more questions before i'm all set (at least i think so).

Is there anything i want to move from my SSD? I ONLY want windows and programs on my SSD except steam.

I want to install steam but how do i install it on another HDD? Do i just hit install on drive K? Should i create a folder within the HDD labeled program files or is there something more technical involved?

Also, i heard about people doing disk partitioning, which to my understanding, is dividing the disk into multiple spaces in case something happens to it? Should i really do this on my SSD? For example, should i partition it to be Windows OS and then Windows Programs?

Just to make sure one more time (not to annoy sorry) please let me know if there is anything else i should redirect from my SSD to HDD.
