How to make a copy of a pervasive database

I have a pervasive database call sqn which is my production database.  I want to make a copy of my production database as sqndev for testing, on the same server.

I have no idea how to do this HELP Please.

You can copy the contents of the data folder to a new data folder, say sqn\*.* to sqndev\*.*, and then setup the new database in PCC.  

I try that, but when I try to view the property of any table I'm getting the following errors:
error retrieving stat information on the table.
warning index definitions for table xxx do not match the physicial file.
On the general tab there is no info (blank).

When I double click on any table I'm getting the following error: The ri definitions is out of sync and btrieve error 73.
