Can you explain a bit more what you are trying to achieve?
Ephraim WangoyaCommented:

If you only want to do a copy of the database.
First take the database offline or detach it
Copy all the files for the database (.mdf, .ldf .ndf if any) to your new location
Reattach your database to the server

All this is not worth it, Just take a backup of the database and copy it wherever you want

You use the COPY_ONLY clause.
