Ah, forgot about that. FreeDOS doesn't support files over 2 GB, so I
guess that rules it out.

You could always split them (*.000, *.001, *.002) and combine later.
Actually, exFAT supports big files, but FreeDOS (wisely) doesn't
implement it (patents, bah).

Presumably anything like Linux GParted or maybe even one of the
FreeDOS fdisk tools.

Free software? Dunno, check some of the Linux distros. There's
probably some DOS tool, but I can't remember (or it isn't free and/or
libre). Two I just searched for and found aren't free, for instance.
But I've not frequently cloned drives, so I'm the wrong person to ask.
(And Ghost used to have a DOS/DJGPP version, but that won't help
