If you would right click "My Computer" and click "manage" then go to "disk management" and post that window here, we may be able to help.

I think the "E" disk "Programs" is not showing up there because it's "System"

This means you have programs that interact with Windows 7 on it so it will not let you back up tot he same disk.

If you create a partition on the disk 1 and give it a drive letter (create new simple volume) Windows backup will then let you use the new partition. You will need to shrink the E drive so you have unallocated space then create a new simple volume. It should work then.

Partition or Volume - Shrink

Partition or Volume - Create New

If you have problems, let me know.
