Open disk management.
- SET other SSD drive as non active.
- Delete all partitions on the problematic drive (Windows Recovery Backup), then make a new partition and format as NTFS.

Thanks! The HDD problematic drive has 1.5 TB worth of data on it, but it is a 6TB drive. I'll try to make a new partition and move the files over and then NFTS the problem area.

On the problematic drive (6T):
Is it a GPT drive?
How many partitions you have on it and what size are them?

It's GPT since it's 6TB and no partician until now. Now I'm moving the 1.2 TB of data over to the new partition then I'll reformatted the old partician that had the windows backup on it. Hopefully that will fix it.

You should move to ANOTHER disk then delete ALL partitions on the drive, then make a new partition and format as NTFS.

So after I made the partition on the recording drive (the one with the issues), I moved all my files over (1.2TB) to the new partition and then reformatted the old partition the had the Windows Backup on it (which I will never use again on an internal dive) and everything is back to booting at 25 secs when the "Start Windows Screen" appears right on time!!

So all's good now!

Thanks everyone!

I plan on cloning it with Macrium Reflect which I use to clone my OS drive.
