Reinstalled windows and a drives dynamic

Hi I'd be so greatful if someone could advice me on this.
I reinstalled windows on a new SSD,
Went to assign letters to secondary hard drives to find 1 says dynamic.

When I put old windows 7 drive back in it came up as normal on that so it doesn't seem to be a issue with the drive?

It won't let me do it via the options that doesn't wipe the data (it's 2TB so I can't really back it all up)
Plllleeeeeeassse help if you can.
