Just don't have both drives pugged in at once, and always put the drive back where you found it, and you should be fine.
Wow, thank you for your fast reply!
So I can conclude: moving an EEPC-encrypted drive in a Thinkpad´s Ultrabay, though it was previously installed and encrypted while it was connected to the internal drive-bay´s SATA-connector, is safe.
This info means a lot to me!
Just out of curiosity, I´d like to know more about the alternative: Might booting a "system on a stick", like Ubuntu´s Live-USB installation, cause trouble with the internal EEPC encrypted drive?
Thank you very much for your support and helping to make my digital life a bit more convenient!
I´ll post tomorow, how it worked out.
Have a nice week!
I didn't say moving it was safe - I said
always put the drive back where you found it, and you should be fine.
Any trouble with the internal encrypted drive will come from bad actions from the OS you boot up from - the encrypted drive has nothing to do with the situation as nothing on it is running (it's encrypted). If you boot up an OS which goes and writes data to other drives, then the probability is, it won't boot any more.
My advice would be to only have one drive physically attached at a time, that way there's no chance of cross-corruption.
Thank you for explaining the connection and taking time to do so!

So I´ve moved the internal drive to the ultrabay, where I swap it with my personal system drive when needed.
Not putting in both system drives at the same time, I haven´t experienced any problems ever since.
