Default Transferring Hard Drive From A Bricked Computer

So recently I had bought a new desktop from Facebook Marketplace which is operating well, but I have been dealing with the uneventful scenario of having a nearly full storage. I still have the previous hard drives from the bricked computer and wanted to know if I could use them on this new desktop instead, if the one that held the OS is unusable, if I could use both, etc. Any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: The original desktop was bricked due to deleting the wrong registry value.

pop the old drive into your facebook pc and get whatever data you need, then format the drive and use the space as you need
