When I go to do a database backup it seems too only list one of the local drives. The other two are missing. I cannot add them as devices under server objects either.  

Any ideas?

This is because you are not running your SQL services (SQL AGENT almost) with a domain account (I recommend use managed service account from Active Directory)

You need to put the address like this:

\\SERVERBACKUP\FOLDERDESTINATION

You cannot use network drives mapped.
