Use mysqldump to extract the data then create the new db and restore the data.

U can use a .bat File if you eter something like this.
Please modify the Mapped D:\ and replace the placeholders (YOUR_...) to your needs.

C:\YOUR_FOLDER_WHERE_MYSQL_IS\bin\mysqldump -u YOUR_USER --password=YOUR_PASSWORD YOUR_DB YOUR_TABLE  | mysql -u YOUR_USER --password=YOUR_PASSWORD YOUR_DB YOUR_NEW_TABLE_NAME

you can use this command also in your mysqladmin or the console window
