About a year ago I purchased a Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 120GB SSD (MKNSSDCR120GB-7) to use as a boot drive, which worked perfectly for about 6 months when the drive failed. RMA'd, got a new drive, same setup for about 3 months until this drive followed in suit, failed entirely two days ago. RMA'd again, but now I'm extremely iffy about the drives, and want to have an emergency plan in case my next drive fails.
So, in return, I ordered a 1TB Seagate HDD. I plan to use it as my secondary main drive, but here is the catch, I was wondering how practical it would be to partition out a section of this drive to throw a secondary boot on it to use if the SSD boot would fail again.
If this is practical, would I be able to basically have a clone of the main boot in a sense that it would recognize all of the installed programs correctly, etc?
Any and all ideas are extremely helpful, thank you for your help in advance!

PS: Yes, it's sad I have to prepare for my Mushkin to fail again, be careful if you plan to order from this company!
