Windows 7: Drive not listed in Defragmenter Schedule

Drive not listed in Defragmenter Schedule

I'm sure I created this problem but don't know how to fix it.

I built this PC (Windows 7 Pro) using an OCZ SSD for the C drive. I never could get the system stable so I replaced the SSD with a hard drive.

I would now like to include the C Drive in my Schedule of drives to be automatically defragmented.

Windows Disk Defragmenter lists my C drive along with the System Reserved Drive and two other physical HDDs. However, when I click on "Configure Schedule" only the other two HDDs are listed.

I'm thinking that Windows might think the C drive is still an SSD. Can anyone please tell me how to fix this?

Did you re-run the Windows Experience test when you swapped out the drives?
