you can mount your phone as a mass storage device then use windows to copy the files. or you can use ADB from the android SDK and do an "adb pull /sdcard/ c:/path/to/save/data/" –  Ryan Conrad Aug 28 '12 at 19:51

Or you can take your SD card out of the phone, place it into a card reader, and attach that to your Windows PC. It should be recognized automatically and will most likely even open directly in an explorer window. –  Izzy Aug 28 '12 at 20:58

The best tool for dumping partitions and devices is a unix tool called dd, which is also available with almost any Linux distribution, like Ubuntu.

If you're running windows then you might want to try dd's counterpart for Windows - WinDD.

It's usually:

dd if=[source_inputfile] of=[sink_outputfile]

Warning!

These tool can do harm to your drives if used incorrectly (if you mix up data source and sink, the source will be overwritten). A quote from Wikipedia:

It is jokingly said that dd stands for "disk destroyer", "data destroyer", "death and destruction", or "delete data", since when used for low-level operations on hard disks, a small mistake, such as reversing the if and of (input and output) parameters, could result in the loss of some or all data on a disk.

So please, be cautious.
