Go to My Computer -> View -> Folder Options. Choose the View tab.
Then click Show all files. Now you will be able to see the hidden files and copy them too.

For a list of options, from a Dos prompt, type DIR /?  and press enter.

dir /ah
This means that you like all files with Atribute Hidden
=> all hidden files
with dir /ah /s typed in the root you get all the hidden files (and dir's) on your disk.
A copy is not possible I believe, but you can do it with windows explorer.

You can copy hidden and system files using xcopy32 in a dos window. Note this does not work in dos alone.
