Should be able to, yes. Power down, connect the old drive, boot up into Windows and see if you view the files on the old drive in Windows Explorer.

so by adding the extra hard drive, I should be able to access the old one as well as the new one. because I think what happened, I didn't have enough memory to upload and install the 10, and caused my pc to crash. Does that sound logical? I could not even boot up in safe mode. Thanks so much for the help.

Yes. I have four connected to this computer's motherboard and they are all accessible in Windows Explorer.
