I don't use spotlight so I added my internal HDD into the exception/privacy/do-not-index option under privacy tab in system preferences.

Now, the problem: each and every time I log in to my mac I don't know why but, macOS seems to act weirdly, it is removing my exception list from the privacy column under spotlight. This happens everytime I restart and add back the hard drive, macOS removes it.

What I have tried so far: I use OnyX, so I thought it might be the spotlight maintenance scripts; causing the issue so I uninstalled it; but, still I don't know why and what causes the the removal
