Problem creating a System Image with Windows 7

wyndham
I have an SSD drive which I use for Windows 7 and consequently have set as many 'work' folders to other drives (e.g. IE Temporary Files, general 'temp' files, etc).

The problem with this is that Windows now thinks that the drive which holds the 'temp' folders (etc) is a system drive, and there are two consequences (that I am aware of and which are causing me a problem).

1) I can't use that drive to hold the System Image. This can be worked around, but still.
2) Windows seems to want to store the entire 'temp' drive in the System Image. The 'temp' drive contains several other temporary items which do not need to be backup up, and certainly not as part of a System Image.

Any ideas? I would love to be able to advise Microsoft about this too, but don't know how...

(General Info)
Windows 7 64bit, all updates applied.
The SSD drive is 60Gb and currently has over 42Gb used.
