shadow copies of server 2012r2

I am trying to set up shadow copies VSS on a Windows server 2012 R2 machine. I have a drive set up for the VSS's. However, when I go to set up the VSS, it does not give the option  for the drive.  when I go tothe settings window, it only comes up with the volume being the same drive as the data. How can I set up shadow copies VSS on a Windows server 2012 R2 machine?

What format is the data drive and the target drive for shadow copies? NTFS for both is preferable.

the shadow copies are occurring and they do work, but I don't think they are on the H drive backing up the G drive.
