I have used this technique on Windows and Linux machines for many
years (over a decade). This will work unless your file system is
encrypted. Even then, I think, as long as you have the encryption key
and nnative tools for the OS that mounts it, it will work.
With the proliferation of USB and Firewire enclosures these days it
has actually gotten easier.. especially with notebook drives!
