Best practice would be to reinstall Windows fresh.

-2x8GB @ 3200               RAM              -2x8GB @ 3600 

-EVGA 2070 Super             GPU               -GTX 1060 6gb

If it is indeed a HDD then the BEST thing to do would be to get an SSD and install Windows on that, then recover everything you need from the HDD at your leisure.  Then format the HDD once you're done and use it for games that don't benefit from an SSD so much.
