to get it while mounted:

download and unzip http://www.chrysocome.net/dd

use the command dd if=\\.\k: of=drive.img bs=10M

where k: is the drive it is mounted on (change to suit)
drive.img is the target file (must be enough space to store an uncompressed image of the drive)
and 10M is the buffer (chunk) size during the copy - larger sizes mean faster copies, but more memory used.

to get it while not mounted:

just copy the file :)
