-Windows is up to date?

-Motherboard drivers?

-Gpu drivers?

-Cpu and gpu temps are good?

-Running at least 2x 8GBs of ram?

-PC is clean of viruses and malware?

-Nothing in the background eating up cpu or gpu resources?

I have GPU drivers up to date, not sure about motherboard though, is it matter?

Temp good, I use 16 GB RAM

I only have Opera running when playing game

How do you know that my PC not experiencing significant bottleneck?

Is it normal that RTX 2060 can't run wildlands ultra settings @1080p 60fps?
Because significant bottlenecks only occur when pairing a high-end component with a low-end component. You have two higher end components. If you are experiencing issues with your game play, the problem exists elsewhere.

I have same setup bought from bestbuy ibuypower pc came with i7 7700 had rtx 3 g 2060 instead of the 6 g . And it got more than 45 fps. I upgraded to the rtx evga 2070 and I get 90 fps or so and runs very well. I wouldnt think the 2060 would bottleneck if the 2070 doesnt on mi e with same cpu

Unless the OP has literally the exact same hardware - not just the cpu and gpu - and software installed in the PC as you did, this doesn't hold as much weight.

Neither of the storage drives appear to be faring well, with the C drive being worse off.
The secondary drive is a slow 5400rpm model - nothing to really be done about that one.

Is the C drive's firmware up to date?
How about drive health? If Western Digital doesn't have available software, you can check drive health with Crystal Disk Info: https://crystalmark.info/redirect.php?product=CrystalDiskInfoInstaller
Scan the drives for viruses and malware. Adwcleaner is pretty good at finding malware that tends to get past antivirus programs: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

The drive has accumulated a large number of bad sectors - it happens to all storage drives over time.
"Bad sectors are areas of the hard drive that do not maintain data integrity. They are automatically masked by the operating system and thus hard to identify, especially if large amounts of the disk are currently in use.
If you actually run into bad sectors, however, that certainly is a bad sign."

Do you backup your data from time to time? If not, you should do so.
That, and consider replacing that unit.

Does this can happen when the HDD almost full? Because I only have like 250GB free space from 1.8 TB

Or because bad PSU problem possible? I use a cheap 1stplayer budget PSU at first but I changed it to Seasonic Focus Gold now
