So I'm migrating back to Ubuntu after a long struggle with Windows specific applications for my college work. My problem is, I now have two hard drives in my laptop, an SSD and a mechanical one. I plan to install Ubuntu on my SSD (not dual boot with Windows) while my mechanical HDD would serve as a backup storage for my residual files from my Windows.
Can my mechanical HDD then be accessible when I go into Ubuntu after the install? Or do I need to change the filesystem and what not?
