I ran diskpart on my server (windows 2008R2) server has 4 hard drives. Everything seems to be working ok but it seems like the Labels are wrong.  Not sure if this has an impact since it a label?
Volume C does not have a label then G & E have same lable and F is Local Drive 2.  Can someone tell me if this is an issue and how to fix it?

Under list volume I see this.

volume 0  D
volume 1       System Reserve
volume 2  C    
volume 3  G  Local Drive  1
volume 4  E   Local Drive  1
volume 5  F   Local Drive  2

Not an issue.
The volume # and letter define the drive.

If I change the lable will it impact the data in any way?

Yes and no, that data will remain unchanged. but you will have to remap to the new drive lable to access the data.

One reason you have duplicate labels could be that you had a RAID array which is now broken. As servers should use RAID, and the array is broken now, that could indicate a problem...
