Default Second hard drive

I'm going to buy a second hard drive to store files, images, etc. I'll use my original drive for the OS (XP Home) and applications.

About once a year, my XP Home crashes and I have to reformat my hard drive. When I have these problems, would it possibly affect the data drive? If so, would an external USB 2.0 drive be any safer?

Thanks

It would not affect the Data drive because its a seperate hard drive...

Is there any kind of connection that I could use in an emergency by removing my data drive from the desktop and connect it to my laptop to transfer files without using a case?
