Windows 7: Scheduled Defrag Disabled for SSD, but what about 2nd HD?

Win 7 Home Premium 64bit

Ok, here was my mistake. When I setup my system after I built it, I used a SSD tweaking guide to configure my SSD drive I have my OS installed on.

In Admin tools - Scheduled Tasks - Disk Defrag - I had it disabled, which I switched to enabled. (I will go back and disable it because I want to do it manually.)
In Services - Disk Defrag - I had it set to disabled. After I switch this to 'manual' I am able to select my 2nd HD and go tools - defrag and defrag as normal.

Sorry for the confusion, too many changes made and forgotten!
