Copying an existing db to create a new one

I want to duplicate an existing db into a new empty db with a different name - retaining all structure of the original db.

 

How does one do this? And, during the creation, will all the old files be duplicated - e.g., templates?

Hello acters,
Yes, you can create an empty (no data) copy of your database, but you will need to copy your supplemental files over manually. Instructions are in the following Knowledgebase article:
