SSD to bootable HDD

I have a new computer with a SSD as the primary drive. I have a second HDD available in this computer. After I install the software I need on the SSD I would like to make a bootable copy of the SSD and install it on the HDD to have as a bootable backup. I have read many posts about this yet cannot understand what I need to do.

I'm new to Win 7 and would appreciate a simple explanation, thanks!

Do you mean to say you want to be able to boot from the hard drive or do you want a disk image of the ssd on the hard drive

Thanks for the reply. I would like to use the SSD as my primary drive. After I have all of my software installed on the SSD I would like to copy the SSD onto the HDD. If the SDD goes down for some reason I would like to have the HDD as a bootable option.

Does an ISO (in my case Macrium) have to be bootable, IOW have an MBR in the image, in order to be restorable, or just be in a bootable environment, like an external drive that's been made bootable? Thanks!
