I have a Seagate Skyhawk 2TB hard disk which contains:-
C:
D: Anime, movies, songs, softwares (1TB total space)
E: personal documents and files

I want to convert it into external hard disk (don't ask me why), so how will the process work?

I mean I saw various videos to buy a case and we just have to connect it with USB to another laptop or PC.

So my question is should I format the c drive and then use it or should I directly use the disk using the case?

Because then how will the disk align it's drives when I connect it to new laptop or PC? Will data be lost if I do it directly? Or what?

(Because I really have approx 500GB of anime + movies which I can't afford to lose)

Please guide me.

if you have some data that you can't afford to lose.
backup to multiple device
I could have backed up. But then the whole point of converting it into external hard disk would be pointless.
If you suggest cloud, then, my friend, I don't have any cloud service with 500GB space and that high internet.

Having that critical data on a single device is simply flirting with disaster.
Especially considering what you're getting ready to do. There are far too many ways for 'oops' to appear.
