So I switched back to my HDD after my SSD failed.
It was all speedy and smooth till yesterday. I let it run idle for 2 hours then copied a file.
That is when the problem started. The PC became too slow and it showed "Not responding" When I opened a folder.

Then I clicked on restart. It didn't restart and showed me "Getting windows ready. Don't turn off your system" out of nowhere.

It took too long so I shut down the PC by holding the power button and started it again. The "Getting windows ready. Don't turn off your system" appeared again on boot and shortly after, the system booted into windows.

The system is till running slow. I ran SFC /SCANNOW and it showed me that it found issues but all issues couldn't be solved.
I have the log, should I upload it?
What do I do?

That's different most folks would have the OS on the ssd.
It's also odd that UBM does not show this ssd.
Anyway run the chkdsk on the hdd and see what happens.
I think it is fast again, but it is still slow at boot, which is probably because of the HDD
