Solved Okay to unplug internal storage devices? Tags: Storage Hard Drives Devices Power Last response: December 10, 2013 5:39 AM in Storage Share petrou58 December 10, 2013 5:32:24 AM I'm about to install a new internal hard drive, but the only power cable that reaches it is being used by another drive. If the computer is off, will unplugging the power to that drive and connecting a different power cable to it affect the drive in any way?
