    Question What happens when I use old SSDs and HDDs in a new PC build?

    So I plan on building a new PC (first time) and I'd like to use my current SSD and HHD. What happens when I do so? Is it safe? Would I not have to install Windows 10? Do files get corrupted/stay like they are on my current PC? Or is the safest bet just to get new storage?
