Standard forensics approach - first thing you do is make a record
of the scene (which is easy with IT because you can replicate it).
Some MS-Windows tools might do this, but beware that they don't
do it at a file-system level. That is not what you want to do.
You might want to look at Ghost (as an example) to do this kind
of backup - I believe it compresses disk images quite nicely. Again,
make sure it's reading the raw disk, and not theVFAT file system.
The Nortons utility sets are the obvious example for disk recovery
in the Win9x space. You probably won't be able to work on the
copies of your disk, however, in Win9x (unlike you could with a
VFAT mount under the Linux file system).
