If you cloned it using a software clone type command and specified the other HDD (your storage drive) as the target and not just a partition on that drive it probably did what you asked. By cloning it that way it may have just overwritten the drive and left a large unused partition -- take a look in disk management to see if that is the case.

If there is a large unpartioned space (probably a black bar in disk management) you should be able to partition it to use it for storage. If there is only a 500GB partition and nothing else shows up then you may need to unpartition the storage drive to get all the space back.

In the future you might want to use the free version of Macrium Reflect, and use a backup option instead of a cloning.

Look into an external hdd and start moving "important documents/files" you use constantly.
Then you need to look at getting rid of somethings you don't use anymore.
Some steam games chew through alot of hard drive space so be mindful of this.
