Hi all, I just have a quick question. I'm building a new computer this fall and I was wondering if in addition to buying an SDD, I could simply take my old HDD and use it on my new build. I will be installing the operating system on the SDD, and just using the old HDD to have all my files and stuff. Thank you! Not sure if this question needs any specs information or not, if so just ask. Thanks!

Yeah as long as you don't use it to boot it will be fine.

If you will be using the same license key, you need to remove Windows from the old hard drive to comply legally with Microsoft.
