Freaking out. Backup drive not accessable in new Win7 build

Just finished building new PC and I moved my 750gb backup drive into new system. The drive is recognized and shows up in Disk Management as Disk 2 Basic 698.64 GB Online. 15.00gb unallocated / 683.63 gb Healthly (Recovery Partition). My options when right clicking are: Convert to Dynamic Disk, properties, and Help.

Help is useless so I'm asking for your help. I have 12 years of photos of my kids on this drive.

Thank You,

Is the drive still recognized OK by the old system?

If so, then the absolute safest way to handle it is to transfer the files from the old system to the new one over the network.
