And here is a video with the noise it makes when the lockup occurs

Thanks for any help.
Ok, slide your mouse on the right side of the screen and click search.
Type event view logs and hit enter, now look at the tabs and find system logs and windows error logs.
Look at yesterdays timeline and today, did windows mention anything about a disk drive error ?
If it has a exclamation by it its mean the drive is having problems.
If its a red x and its consistent like every hour oe 2 hours daily.
You will need to get your drive rmaed, give us the hard drive model number.
I checked your videos and the file transfer look pretty speedy.
