I recently had to wipe my hdd due to it crashing and not being able to fix it. I have to hdds in my system. For some reason windows labeled the storage hdd as C and my primary as E. I unplugged the storage hdd and was able to boot the pc up at the lst known workable configuration.

I believe why I was unable to boot it up because the pc wanted to boot up using the C hdd.

How can I relabel the drives?

I want my primary to be labeld C and my storage as E.

Thank you for any help.

I have been told you can remap the drives. I have not found much info on this.
The best way to proceed (unfortunately) is to reformat the drive. Make sure you unplug the other drive before you do.

Yep if you installed it to 'E' you will have to reformat and redo the drive as windows will continue to look for 'E' drive even if you have changed the leter.
