I expected that the installer would give me a choice about how much partition space to use out of the 1TB available, but I could not find any way in the installer to tell it not to use the full 1TB. I completed the installation and the whole 1TB is used up.

Go to www.debian.org and select "Installation Manual" from the menu. If
you look at section 6.3.2 then you see a concise description of what you
can do with your disk and partitioning.
Hint: check out the "manual" option.
