What happens on one hard drive...has no correlation to what occurs on the other, except when HD1 is accessing data files stored on HD2.
You can attach the second drive (using proper cables) and format it by just going to Disk Managerment. Start/Run...type diskmgmt.msc and hit Enter.
Once formatted, you can then store data files on it.

AFTER you have installed you OS on the SSD, then you can connect the 1 TB drive as the second or slave drive. If the drive is still viable, the data will still be intact. If it recognizes the drive but can't find anything on it, then go ahead and format it and use it to load all your programs, spreadsheets, music, videos, whatever to instead of the SSD. The idea of the SSD is to have your OS and most important or speed essential applications on the first drive and data and other programs on the second.
