Since the power is already off, it makes no difference, so unplug it. The only time HDDs get badly corrupted is if there are delayed writes happening when unplugged.

My home PC died this weekend. I was burning a CD when I walked by and noticed it was off. No power, tried different cord direct to outlet and nothing so quite sure it is the PS.

My question is this. I have an external HD on USB and wonder if I can unplug it without loosing it or should I leave it plugged in and replace the PS and bring it back up. In the past I unplugged an external HD and could not get it back. It was so long ago I don't remember if I unplugged it when the PC was on or off though. It has all my years of genealogy and family tree on it and I sure don't want to loose all that. confused2
