Setting in Win 10 not working, trying to recover

SO I use Brave browser, and I have the password managerr and all of a sudden it stopped working and has no more of my PW's (not sure if it's relavent). I went to setting to go to recover and it just freezes and also when bottong the taskbar takes about 3-5 min to show up. I have God Mode but I hae never messed with it, I did however try and create a new account with it to see if the issue persists. Again that will freeze up too. Please help I can not loose my data I have back ups of some nut the no real backups just HDD backups.

If this hard drive is the older type with the spinning platters then it sounds like it is failing. I would physically remove the drive. Get a new drive. Rebuild the computer then connect the old drive and grab the most critical files first before the drive collapses completely. Paying for data recovery is pricey.
