If you mean what I think you mean, just do dbCopy = db

That wouldn't work, because you're basically assigning the db to another variable that is literally going to be the exact same thing.

But I'll try it, thanks! (because I'm not sure lol)

Why would you need two? If you're trying to bypass the storage limit, it wont work.

dbCopy = db[:]
the [], takes a portion of the iterable, and [:] will copy the entire iterable

If you're trying to bypass the storage limit, that's not allowed
