Does anyone know of a free software program for backing up a complete HDD to a secondary HDD installed on the one PC?

So you mean image it over?

I recommend either:

-Macrium Reflect Free(easy to use, but limited in features)
-SelfImage(simple to use)
-Clonezilla(very fast but not so intuitive GUI)

If you want to be able to backup to a secondary HD regularly I recommend DriveImageXML.

It supports using the Windows Shadow copy service so that you can backup while working.

I also highly recommend Acronis which costs, but is excellent value for money
