On the external hard drive (which is WD HDD actually just attached with USB-> SATA controller: View: https://imgur.com/a/2LWhNZW
) Windows 10 is installed so it has own system reserved partition.

It was attached for a long time and used for some backups. PC restarted with it connected many times and I notice that Windows 10 appears to extremely slow boot on welcome screen. But after I pulled out the drive nothing changes.

Now on cold startup of PC and on restarting the Windows 10 takes a lot of time for startup. I use sleep mode for now because of it loads faster from this state.

How can I fix it?

My Windows 10 Pro x64 build: 20H2 19042.746
