Brake drag

My wifes mountain bike has a little brake drag only when pedaling hard. I have taken it appart, put it back together and adjusted it. No noise when its disconnected so it must be the brake. Why only noise under hard pedaling?

wheels lazer straight. Pads way out still makes noise. Maybe its due to me being 200+ lbs on a 13in bike?

Broken frame.

Or it's not the brake pad.
