The disk itself is only a few months old, it didn't got hit or anything so i hope there's no HW failure incoming.
If i lose those 3tb of data i'm going to be very, very sad, lol.

If it was me and the PC booted and I got into Windows I'd hook a USB HDD up to it and pull/copy all my important data off.
I would do this prior to any other efforts......

HDDs drives are known to crash in my experience in four main scenarios.....
1) Old and just too much wear over time......this can be many years though.
2) A hard drop....usually from dropping PC.
3) Heat.....HDD running at 55C+ will die fairly quickly.
4) Infant Mortality....which is what I think you have....basically a bad HDD that exhibits early in life cycle.

Ok, new situation.
The scan stopped with a "an unknown error occurred" after running for two days.
Good news is that at least i was able to run FRST and scan for the log which i'm attaching.

At this point i'll just be happy if i manage to get to windows and backup all my stuff before sending this disk for an RMA and getting a new one. :(

If this fails you could use Reatogo desktop to backup data

Download the attached fixlist.txt to the same location as FRST
Run FRST as before and press fix
On completion try a normal boot

No luck - it stayed on the starting windows screen for a couple of minutes then diskcheck.
I had run the command you suggested through the prompt earlier though. :(

I tried cancelling it before it started but then the screen got stuck there.

In hindsight i shouldn't have turned the pc off that one time it had booted

Ok, i'm a blind dumbass. I just noticed the disk check was being triggered on a different drive which had the same name (old installation of windows on another disk). I disconnected said disk and tried to boot again and voila!, it appears it's more or less working now.

Very, very embarassed right now.

Good news IC-434 that you are up and running.
I did look at your FRST log I noticed all the drive letters/partitions and disks....didn't realize one had old Windows install on it.
