Are they all separate or in a raid array?

If you mean four physically separate HDD's, the problem is at the hardware level. This said, once the (PRIMARY O/S) drive is replaced and an O/S is loaded, finding the other drives shouldn't be a problem with the appropriate drive controlling software.

It's a good day when you learn something

simple answer would be yes you can access the data
you will need to take ownership of files and folders as administrator first though.
