I Built a new pc last week.
Specs:
Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus x570 Pro
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
GPU: EVGA GTX 970 (leftover from old pc)
RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance RGB 3200MHz C16 kit
PSU: Corsair RM750 Watt 80+ Gold
Case: Corsair Crystal 680x with 3 LL120 Fans and their fan controller
SSD: Some old 250gb thing that works perfectly fine and is used for my Windows
HDD: WD Black 2TB and a WD Blue 1TB

The boot drive has no issues, works perfectly fine, but both my HDD's keep getting unallocated
I did a test to check if my HDD's were damaged but they work perfectly fine.
I've used multiple different cables and ports.

I've installed DMDE but I have no idea what to do with it.
I could really use some help.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Make sure you're on the latest BIOS update for your motherboard. Are you using Disk Manager to allocate the drives/partitions on the drives? If so, try and work with EASEUS Partition Master(or a similar third party app).

Soo, updating my BIOS seems to have fixed something, after installing that and having to install a clean windows installation because it wouldn't boot. My pc instantly recognized both HDD's even though before they were unallocated. I did not need to do anything else. I will see if it works now, but if they randomly unallocate again I will be back with more questions
 
If it happens again, just show us the Partitions window in DMDE. Depending on the damage, a repair may involve a couple of clicks.

As to why this is happening, I can't offer a suggestion. However, yours is the third thread of this kind which I've seen recently.
