No.

Why? That mains to USB adapter has never been enough to power up a 10TB HDD. Why do this? Why not the usual USB case for desktop drives then plug it into that router (which I know about) and use the Router's NAS features/

Answer
Use the right equipment

If you don't want to damage the HDD, you should better look for an actual NAS device who can adapt to your needs and your budget. This way your files will be safe and live longer than if you take this "equipment".
