Do you have phpMyAdmin installed? if so there is an option to 'view dump(schema) of database xxx' select 'structure and data' and hit go - this gives you page you can cut and paste , paste it into the 'run SQL queries' textbox in phpMyAdmin on your machine and a complete copy will be made.
if you do not have it - www.phpwizards.net is where you can find it !
