HDD Hitachi Problem

HP Recommended
HP Envy 27-b1xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good morning, I have a problem on which I have exhausted all my analysis skills.
I have an HP Envy 27-b1xx AIO PC with OS Windows 10 Home Version 20H2 Build19042.1083. I have two internal disks, one SSD Samsung MZVPW256HEGL-000H1with the OS and most of the applications on it, the other is a 1TB HDD Hitachi HGST HTS721010A9E630 on which I had installed some applications and all my personal data. Now it happened that a few days ago all the application and personal files disappeared from the Hitachi HD. I've tried to recover the data with Wondershare RecoverIt without success (unreadable files), I've passed a complete analysis with antivirus (no virus found), I've restored Windows 10 conditions to before the last update (June 2021). The current situation is that everything works: OS and operations on the SSD drive, while on the Hitachi HDD drive I can save and read files, but they disappear after a few hours. I reverted to the OS build version described above, the volatility of the files continues.
Can anyone indicate to me what is happening and what should I do to be able to continue using this internal disk as well?
Thanks to those who will give me some indication.

If another disk is performing strange that the test is ok, it seems to have a problem

remove whatever is on it if there is still something, format it, completely, then test a few files to see

Unfortunately, the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test program does not run.

Probably because it is 32-bit?

I couldn't find a 64 version.

The HDD is an internal disk in an all-in-one PC and it is extremely complicated to connect it to another PC.

However, by connecting another Hitachi external HDD to my PC, a different model, the problem of files disappearing does not occur.
