Default If I remove the a hard drive will the other hard drive delete itself?

So I have two hard drives, I wanna know if I remove one, which cause the pins to get disconnected, once I connect it again, will all my data be there?

Yes. Hard drives are not erased by the simple act of disconnecting and connecting.

"the other harddrive delete itself" :laughing:

Magnets, Formatting, and Virus's. Are really the only ways to corrupt data on a hard-drive. Now, if you remove it while it is on, that might cause problems.
