Most of the e2fsprogs programs, despite having a name for just ext2, are
actually for the entire ext2/3/4 family. In this case, dumpe2fs, like
tune2fs, e2fsck and mke2fs that you're probably familiar with, also work
over ext3 and 4.

Every mature filesystem should have a dump program as part of their
userspace utilities package. It does as named: dump the filesystem as a
file, tape backup, etc. That means, not only the files in said
filesystem, but all attributes and filesystem-specific data structures too.
