Copy Database from Shared Network Drive

I have an existing, shared database that is stored on the network drive and I want to make a copy of it where I will be able to have all the existing contacts but if I add or delate any, they will not be added to the original.

Ive tried that but I get the message: The current database is a non-local database. Only local databases (those residing on theis machine) can be copied.

 

I presume this is bcause its a shared database that is saved on the company network.

Hi bge3rd,

Sorry I should have elaborated. This process has to be done on the server hosting the database . There is no way to copy the database remotely.
