I wonder if running chkdsk at the deepest level (if there's still such a thing nowadays) might fix something that Defender is struggling with...admittedly this is pure speculation from my part...and probably as useless as some of the other suggestions you've already come across.

I would also try getting rid of older volume shadow copies - there's no point keeping those around and having Defender scan them (assuming it does) if there's nothing you think you'd ever need to recover. Try this from an admin prompt:

vssadmin delete shadows /all

Maybe with these gone, it'll quiet down Defender.

If it doesn't help...well, that was my best shot so far. I'd be curious to know one way or another if you do find a solution.
