If the drive is noisy that is good indication that it has/is failing.

You should first, if at all possible, back up all data stored on that drive. Verify that the back up is recoverable and readable.

However, do remember that anything you do could cause further failure and loss of data.

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS.

Include drive make and model, capacity, and age. How full is the drive?

Okay.

Use Task Manager or Resource Monitor (just one at a time) to observe system performance.

Watch and look carefully. Do not immediately start disabling or uninstalling anything. If you find something, google accordingly to learn more about it.

You should be able to determine what app, process, or service is running and perhaps bottlenecking the drive in question. Or causing some other bottleneck that in turn affects the drive.,

Could be some buggy update, failing attempts to update, or corrupted app.

That Roblox fps unlocker is a likely culprit. Where did you get it?

No need for the link.

Even if the software is from a trusted source there is the possibility that the software is buggy or corrupted in some manner. Or perhaps has a conflict with another running process.

Again use Task Manger and Resource Monitor to find and identify some problem.

Failing that uninstall the unlocker and determine if your system returns to normal.

how often do you defrag your HDD? and you probably should preallocate your pagefile to avoid Windows doing it over time and fragmenting your drive
