This is being exported with the Pr Youtube 4k preset that comes with Pr. 16% room left on my hard drive.

 

Hard Drive: Seagate BarraCuda 6TB Internal Hard Drive HDD - 3.5 Inch SATA 6 Gb/s 5400 RPM 256MB Cache

GPU: RTX 2060 Super

System:

I have no idea what to do, but I know this isn't normal.

Is 16% free space on you HD enough? I don't know what codec you are using to render.

Is that the ONLY disk that you have in your entire desktop PC? You see, a single HDD that's used for everything is woefully insufficient. In fact, performance-wise, that single HDD cannot sustain even 90 MB/s in overall disk I/O  throughput when tasked with simultaneous reads and writes. And since that disk is only 16% free, that concurrent disk I/O throughput drops even further - to around 32 MB/s! You need a second disk, preferably a solid state drive (SSD).

I have other disks - plus several new externals that have not been opened. My main OS disk is SSD, but that's all that's on there is my OS and software. I have another external SSD I could clear out and use solely for exports. Would that work? Or do I need to have the whole project on the SSD?

Yet if I change it to ProresHQ and "pre render" it to smart render it exports in under an hour. The file size is just way too big too upload to Youtube.

At least you know now that it's not a some unknown issue, but just encoder. Have you tried to switch between SW/HW-acceleration? Any difference? What about HEVC, does it work?

If anything, you can transcode ProRes via external encoder, like this:
ffmpeg.exe -hide_banner -y -i "input.mov" -pix_fmt yuv420p -c:v libx264 -tune film -crf 18 -c:a aac -b:a 320k "output.mp4"
