If you make an image now, it should work. I see no reason why not. Just don't put it on the same physical disk as the OS for the reasons explained above.

PS: I would rename the partition D, E or F because B is traditionally reserved for the floppy drives.

Just one thing .... though not so much important . It is better to make the Data drive logical (not primary).
You can use Partition Wizard Bootable CD to manage your partitions easily .

Download Partition Wizard Bootable CD , burn it in a cd. Boot from the cd. It will display all your partitions. Right click on Data partition, and "Set partition as logical" . ( the initial steps are displayed in the webpage link , at the last picture, you are to right click on the data partition )
