Can i plug in a hard drive while the computer is on

I have actually a NAS mechanism that i"m planning on putting a brand-new HDD to store backups in, And i was wondering if its safe to plug it in while running, Yes, i understand also it sounds stupid yet theres a few things i must state.

You watching: Can i plug in a hard drive while the computer is on

i"m running OpenMediaVault(a Linux based NAS os)

And i have 2 ways i think i can do this,

 

I could plug the tough drive right into the psu thats in tbelow currently running, OR, i can usage a second PSU via a pin jumper i have actually, and rotate that on separably. You may ask "Why not shut the computer system off) Due to the fact that i want to keep uptime information, bereason im anal around having the longest uptime.
