Mini PC has a bay for an hdd. Can I add one with data already on it?

I have an old laptop hdd that would fit into the Mini PC's bay. Will I be able to view and/or change the data from the old laptop while it is in the Mini PC?

    Yes, you can install the old laptop's HDD into that PC. Assuming you're using Windows, you may need to go into Disk Management in order to initialize the disk. Otherwise, it won't show up in the file explorer. Once you do that, it will show up and you will be able to access it just like any other hard drive.
