You have it right
. just connect the drive to the motherboard and the power supply.
If you can read/access the drive...I suggest that the first thing you do is a series of scans for malware.
While the drive is attached, I suggest that you run a diagnostic on the drive, following the instructions for usage of such...available at the website of the respective hard drive manufacturer. Run the long/extended test.
