To create as near-perfect copy of the disk as possible?

  I want to work on the failing disk as little as possible in case I
cause further damage.  Since the RAID0 volume is around 300GB I don't
have anywhere that I could cp all of that data so I saw the best
alternative as dd'ing the disk.

  Can you suggest another method I might use to achieve what I want?
