Chosen Solution

I have not used this program before so I downloaded and ran it on a 2009 MacPro with four hard drives. Run time was 3:27

The main thing I saw that differed was in the

Diagnostics Information

Mine came up with just Self test - passed

I would turn off your login items.

Go under the Apple to System preferences > Users and groups > your user account > Login Items

and turn them all off

Also go into your library and clean out those logs. Then run it again.

It would be best it you could boot from an external drive and see if the problem persists.

I suspect a failing hard drive and/or failing hard drive cable.
