Only use the SSD for Windows; place your programs on another drive.

Jonathan has this covered pretty well, my 2 cents is to back up your SSD to the hard drive weekly. As you said SSD's are in their infancy and you may need to update your firmware, wipe it to get performance back or as in my case replace a failed one. SSD reliability between failures is great, up time for an OS installed on them is not so great.

With due respect for my friend Jonathan I disagree with one point. You should install the programs on the SSD. That is the whole point of the SDD - fast access to programs. However all your data may reside on the HDD.
And don't be shy regarding the SSD. There is too much mystery surrounding it. Just treat it like any disk. As long as there is space on it, use it. And don't do any of that "recommended" tweaking like placing the page file on another disk, etc.
The easiest way to include your folders that are now on the 1.5TB drive, just navigate to the folder(s), right click on it and "Include in Library". Then you choose the library where you want to include it.
PS: I image my SSD (which also has a data partition) frequently - every time I made changes to either the system or the data and a scheduled image every second day. But the imaging due to change I do independently, i.e. data partition and system partition each at their own pace, as required.
