I just faced this with a pick and place machine running
Windows 95, on a 20 year-old IDE hard drive.
Almost the first thing I did was get a dual-type USB drive
dock and suck the entire drive image off with Linux and a dd
command. Then, I cloned the drive to one of the special IDE
drives that has a "32 GB clip" jumper option. This option
makes the drive look like a 32 GB drive, although it has an
actual 80 GB capacity. It is a white label model
WL80PATA872. I'm not sure if this system actually needs the
32 GB clip feature, but some old OS'es do.
The drive dock is a "ALL IN 1 HDD Docking" which has both
SATA and PATA connectors. It also has slots for SD cards
and a few other types. It cost $23 delivered.
