Clone a library

Hi,
sorry if this thing has been discussed yet but I didn't find anything.
My question is simple. I use Calibre Portable and I want to clone a library.
To say. I have a library (called for example "Mary" with 200 books inside) and I want a copy of the same library (call it "Fran") with the same 200 books inside.
Is there a way to have it without creating a new library and importing books one by one ?

Thanks

Create a new library (Fran). Select all the books in library (Mary), right click, Copy to library, select Fran (use the option without delete after copy) and let calibre do it's thing.

Or just make a copy of the whole library folder, name the copied folder Fran and point Calibre to it (Switch/create new library - use existing library at the new location)
