How do I connect both iMac (2011) hard drives to backup with Time Machine and Airport Time capsule?

Hi - my iMac has 2 hard drives, 250 Gb solid state and a 2 Tb drive.  I'm backing up using time Machine to an Airport time Capsule but only the 250 Gb drive comes up in hte list?  All my photos are on the 2 Tb drive (about 120GB worth) and I want a back up for these. I'm running under OS X 10.9.1 Maverick
Any help would be greatly appreaciated!

Ok.. I am surprised..
What did you format the 2TB drive.. I find it hard to imagine you formatted an internal drive anything but Mac OS extended journaled (HFS+) .. but you could have.
Time Machine can only backup HFS+ format drives.
Of course this Mavericks.. and in Mavericks the bugs rein supreme in Time Machine.
Reset TM setup.. See A4 here. http://pondini.org/TM/Troubleshooting.html
Make sure the 2TB drive is mounted when you redo the TM setup.
To be honest.. I would also buy CCC and do a full clone of the drive..
TM is great for the occasional file loss.. but it is lousy to restore a drive. CCC at the moment is $40 or so and IMHO money well spent.

I use it but just to say I have no connection to them..
