Need Help - Windows 7 "restore feature" Does Not Show My New WD "My Passport" Drive As A Choice To Restore From

Just purchased and installed a WD My Passport portable drive to create an image of my PC hard drive and to maintain scheduled weekly backups.

This portable drive replaces a Seagate external drive that was handling my backups but was at capacity.

Using the “backup and restore” feature in Windows 7 I was able to create a system image with no problem. But when I tried to perform a restore, my system didn’t find my new WD drive, instead it only listed my old Seagate drive although I changed the drive letter of my new WD.

Anyone know how I can solve this problem so my new WD drive is the only one that appears?

I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

Thank you
