When you say that you "can access the secondary disk", we do assume that you mean
that you have mounted the filesystem that is on the disk and therefore can access the files.
A database engine is an application that reads/writes files of specific (database format).
The files have the data. If you can install the same (or compatible) database application
to you functional operating system and configure the engine to use the existing files, then
you should have access to the data.
Assuming the 1TB disk is unreliable or to be decommissioned, the first step would be to copy
the files of the database into the 320GB disk. Then configure the database engine.
You did not tell which database engine was used in the old system, so we can't even start
to guess where within the filesystem the database files are.
Accprding to you I installed mysql database in another Hard disk and copied all database files to there but it is not running .
showing this error
#1146 - Table 'SREEMA.ACC_ACTUNITS' doesn't exist
My database name is SREEMA and tables name ACC_ACTUNITS
all tables in database showing the same error . i also tried to take backup but showing same error .Moreover i copied database files from this path /var/lib/mysql to the same path of another hard disk
