Is this a bad thing to do with Ext Enclosure HDD?

I have a ton of photos on my main (boot) SATA drive in my PC that I'd like to copy to an external HDD for redundancy (storage). The connection to the external enclosure is USB2. Any reason not to place the SATA HDD from the enclosure temporarily inside the PC while I transfer many GBs of photos...just to speed up the process......and then return the drive to the enclosure?

Thanks!

Fred
