Best Sector by Sector Imaging Software

What is the best imaging software, not like Norton Ghost, that does a sector by sector image copy that does not affect the original drive? I have a failed RAID 5 drive and need to do a manual data copy on that drive (it has a couple of bad sectors, but no hardware failure to my knowledge) and want to make a mirror of it to a healthy drive and then try rebuilding my RAID again. Thanks.

"Best" can have several meanings, depending on what you want to accomplish.

If you want a perfect copy, or as perfect as possible with the possibility of bad sectors, the "best" is ddrescue. It's on many Live CDs.
