I mean, remove your drive from your laptop, put it in someone
else's laptop, boot up and rsync over a lan. I'm assuming that
it's some peice of hardware other than your hard drive that is

This is, of course, in lew of obtaining a IDE adapter.

It's probably fine, but it's more the hardware than the protocol.
They didn't have standardized caddies or plugs before that. My
laptop has a nonstandard plug but it was upgraded by the previous
owner and they got an adapter for it. When I upgraded my drive I
just took their adapter off and stuck it on the new drive.
