No it does not, RoboCopy is a file copy, it will not pull slack and
unallocated space.

Full disk imaging is your best option.  DD is a common tool for this,
dcfldd is nice because it will hash the disk which you want to do
anyways.  There is some good stuff with libewf for acquiring images
also that will acquire them in the Expert Witness Format which was
developed by Guidance Software for Encase.

Hi Michael, I imagine that this question is related to the other question
you posted. As Ansgar said, you can use dd-which is on many good linux
You can also get dd for windows if you are windows based.

You can use netcat to achieve this copy using a network cable-or as you
asked in the other post, use a usb cable and some of the tools from helix.
