Can I use my hard drive like normal after connecting it to my new PC?

Like... How do I explain this lol.

  1. I will install Windows 10 Pro on a new Samsung NVME. I had Win10 Home. Don't know if that matters

  2. After installing Windows 10 Pro and doing all the mumbo jumbo, I'll put in the rest of the SSDs.

  3. Then the HDD (or old SSDs too), can I just plug it in and not have to format it? Will I lose access to the HDD? Or can I just use it like normal? What are the potential changes?

  4. The OS will be on the same Windows account, it will just be Pro instead of Home.

  5. What steps must I take?

Thanks!!

This is my soon-to-be-build if that helps. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/QFTWV6
