How do I add/mount an additional hdd to my fedora server 28 without losing the data

I'm a beginner to Linux and I need help on how I can add/mount my 4TB hard drive. Everything I've read online says I need to partition and format the drive but I do not want to lose the files I have in it. What are the steps I can take to mount this to my server and not lose any data? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I ran the command "fdisk -l" and the drive is labeled as /dev/sdb1

If your hard drive is formatted in a filesystem that your server will natively recognise, you should just be able to create a directory where you want to mount it (e.g. /mnt) and run the command mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt.
