Is It safe? To install 4 internal hard drives each one 2 terabytes equals 8 TB total space on a desktop computer.

I have never heard of this being done but if the drives are compatible with the mother board, I can't visualize any harm. What in the world are you going to do with it? With 8 Terabytes you could hold 8,000 copies of the Encyclopedia Britannica or almost the entire printed collection of the Library of Congress. That's a LOT of data.

Yes ... as long as the power supply can handle the power needed, and the cooling system can keep it from becoming too hot.
