It's quite normal for the CPU meters to spike in Windows. They've done that for years. And as the drives retry due to old age, well that's discussed.

I don't see anything malicious going on here. HUM AND BUZZ are mechanical issues that you solve by replacing the thing that makes the noise or tieing it down.
