Win7 Backup can't see secondary internal hd

I am unable to use the Windows 7 image backup program because it doesn't see my second internal hard drive. I can see the drive in disk management. ( it shows up as SDATA1 D drive) and has plenty of room left 400 gigs out of 700 gigs.

Check this. Most likely something on your second drive is causing Win 7 to see it as a system drive. And it won't image to a system drive.
Windows 7 backup setup does not 'see' local hard drives
