So the question; If I connect only the 40 GB SSD and I install Mint , can I simply connect the 2 TB after and have access to my Data , or will be better to install the 40 SSD and a blank 2 TB GB and then transfer the data on it since I have a duplicate on my 2012 servers . In boot case, what is the best way to create partitions, keep in mind that I don't really create partition in Linux before.
Linux can read from NTFS just fine and write to it to it fine but its still a "heed of caution to do it" sort of thing.

Windows can read from EXT3 and EXT4 with a driver installed.
