Default How can I back up hard drive image in DOS?

Windows is once again not working. I have 2 hard drives, a 250GB with C:\ and D:\ partitions (windows is on this) and a 200GB with H:\ partition which I use to record TV off my capture card.

I can't access Windows, but I want to move some of the stuff from my D:\ to my H:\. I remember doing this on a friend's computer sometime last year, but I can't remember which program I used, nor can I find some familiar on Google. Can anyone help? Thanks.

EDIT: This all started because NTLDR got deleted or corrupted or whatever and I've tried tons of ways to get it back. None of them worked, so I'm going for a fresh install (and possibly a dual boot with Vista? )

xcopy I believe, wont do an image, just the files you select

DOS doesnt have an app for an actual image copy I dont think, rawwrite can handle some images but its hardly like "dd" from the unix/linux world

I was actually able to get back into Windows (after about 3 hours of trying to figure out how), so I'm backing up the files in there now.

Thanks for the help, though.
