    Go up to the Backup menu and click on Image Selected Disks....
    Then you can select your second data drive to add to the backup image:

    You are trying to back up your G: drive to itself. Scroll down in the list of drives to backup and uncheck G: drive to remove it from the backup.

    When MR starts, as shown in your screenshot, it will show ALL your disks -- and, in fact, ALL of them are checked.

    You have to scroll down to the second disk and CLICK on it to select it.

    Once that is selected, you will see the line that says "Clone this Disk ... Image this Disk" move to the second disk. Select Image this Disk.

    Then, select the destination disk.

    Both Macrium Reflect and Acronis True Image have a little bit of a learning curve. Early on, within MR, I found out I had to un-check the items not of interest for that specific session.
    Before MR, with Norton Ghost and ATI, I learned at that time to name my OS and data partitions names such as S03[YT0]C and S03[YT0]D respectively so that no matter how much drive letters got shuffled, no matter when screens I see in front of me during backups or restores -- I know exactly which physical hard-drive's partition is going to be backed up onto which external hard-drive [it also has a unique name].
