System Image - Multiple Drives Only Want to Image one of them

I currently operate a PC with 3 separate HDD. I have my windows 7 and all of my programs installed on a 500 GB HDD. I have all of my files saved to a 2 TB HDD and a 1 TB HDD. I want to do a system image of the 500 GB HDD that has the OS and programs installed on it, however, when I go through to create a system image there is a check box to "Include a system image of drives (C, 1 TB_Storage (E" I only want to image C (The 500 GB HDD) I don't want to image E (The 1 TB HDD). Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Ryan
