Hi there, recently I have been having a problem with loading my games that are saved on my 2 tb Seagate drive. Any time I go to launch a game, it either will take 30-45+ minutes to load into it, or wont launch at all. I'm pretty sure this is an issue with the drive, as recently I installed Assassins Creed Odyssey to my SSD for faster load times, and thats the only game that is not affected. Im sort of at the end of my rope and wanted to see what some other people think I should do. I've defragged the drive, done a complete reinstall of windows, all my drivers are up to date, done scans and cleans with the Windows tools and SeaTools, tried a fresh SATA cable, and continued google searches dont really find much that I haven't done already. I was thinking of maybe reformatting the drive and starting fresh, is there anything else you guys would recommend? Getting a new drive isn't really an option for me right now and would love to be able to fix this issue. thank you in advance guys
if it matters, the rest of my specs are
GTX 970
Ryzen 5 2600
EVGA DDR4-3000 16 gigs
Aorus B450 mobo

hdd health check?
exact model of the seagate hdd?
Scanned with WMIC, CHKDSK and the SeaGate software, those say it's all good.
The exact model is Seagate ST2000DM001-1ER164. It may be worth noting I dont hear any sort of weird noises from it, sounds like the disk is spinning smoothly
