Windows 7 backup of secondary extended NTFS partition

Hello, Do someone know how to configure a backup job (by means of Windows backup tool, of course) selecting single files or folders from a secondary extended partition on the same hard drive ? I splitted partition "C:" and created unit "D:" as NTFS secondary extended partion but when I try to setup a backup job I can only select from the Windows 7 libraries, users data and from the unit C: while the unit D: is not visible at all (but is formatted, of course!).
Second question is: Do someone know if I could recover some single file from an image file created by Windows 7 backup tool ?
Thanks in advance for any help

You select an option during the backup wizard called "Let me Choose" when it asks you "what do you want to backup?".

This will let you browse computer for folders but does not let you select single files.

Here is some steps on how to backup & restore.

Hi and thanks for help. Unfortunately I did the manual selection of files and folder but the secondary extended partition was not visible. Now I can suspend troubleshooting the issue because I have to deliver the notebook to the final user. I will surely go on to do other test when I will have to setup another new Win 7 machine.

Many thanks again.

PS: I don't know if it will be correct to accept your suggestion as a solution, I'm a newbie.
