Will there be problems with external hard drive if it is permanently connected to the splitter the laptop connected to power?

Good time of day.
A Xiaomi mi laptop notebook air 13.3 2018 and adapter with the function of energy transfer (Power Delivery), which is connected through type c 3 usb 3.0 (in addition to these hdmi, rj45 and card reader).
Because the laptop is only 256 GB of memory you want to have something where to store files (movies, music, documents, images of virtuallock, etc.). So I think to buy an external hard drive for 2-3 TB.
The question is:
If the external hard drive connected through this adapter, will it work?
Will there be any problems if I occasionally disconnect\connect a laptop to this adapter (and charge accordingly)? It turns out the external drive will always start and stop or he will continue to work?
Thanks in advance

Did not see a separate power cable.
So far everything I have encountered has provided a stable operation of the hard disk, if there is a separate cable for the power, and some for data.
If you nourish and transmit data on one single USB - all very bad.
It turns out the external drive will always start and stop or he will continue to work?

If you take the right specialized device normal producer type https://www.seagate.com/ru/ru/consumer/backup/
these are able to out skill the OS to go to sleep when not needed.

Don't know what kind of adapter is usually Yes, if the power is enough.
Usually notebook drive 2.5 inch is enough.

Will there be any problems if I occasionally disconnect\connect a laptop to this adapter (and charge accordingly)?
No. Any special problems to drive there.

It turns out the external drive will always start and stop or he will continue to work?
If the power is turned off will naturally stay as he is without food.
And until you power off it will rotate, long-term inaction, except that the head supercoat.
Don't know what kind of adapter is usually Yes, if the power is enough.

If the adapter is connected to, for example, 2 cables to USB, to one of them to take only food and nothing else is connected to this adapter - then Yes.
Otherwise, all very sad.
For unstable. - Nels.Gorczany commented on March 20th 20 at 11:40
@Xzavier.Yost84, This is why? There were of course earlier ports, with bad food, but last time, almost with such did not face. - Montana.Towne commented on March 20th 20 at 11:43
