Copy Hard Disc in DOS

I want to copy the contents of one hard disc to another in DOS.
I know I should use DISKCOPY32 but I don't know what I should follow the command with to ensure all hidden files, system files and folders are copied.
Can anyone help?

You should not use Xcopy to clone disk contents, as it does not handle long filenames correctly - for a description of this problem see here

You will also see links to programs, including a DOS one, that do not suffer from this problem.
