You would have to do the first install and point to where you want it installed ©
You would then have to do a complete new install and point to (K).
It would create 2 desktop shortcuts and 2 program shortcuts. You would have to know which is which one.
I an not sure what it would do to the registry (maybe someone else would know that.
You would have to be sure also that the K drive letter never changes. If it is set to automatically assign a letter, then it would change when you added and took away devices.
You can set it where you can assign it, and it never changes. Thats done in computer management.

You can run a backup program that will backup just your data to another drive or DVD, etc. I use synkback and ghost.
You can clone the entire drive to a new hard drive. Doing this, if the main 1 crashes, you just swap the 2 drives.
You can also do an image of the main drive. This would take less space and when the main drive crashes, you would boot from the emergency boot CD that you create. This will then allow you access to the "image " you created and allow you to reimage the main drive.
