Pixelpoint POS database file

I have an old version, 2002, and I'm planning on backing up the database file (.db).
If I accidentally loose this file, how do I create a "new" database file?

When you install the software it creates a new empty DB on the Posserver Station.

Thank you both. My motivation is to manually backup my database file in case the software doesn't. I've had multiple occurances of the "RAT" where the system locks up and I've had to reboot it. I also do not have the original disks to reinstall the software. I purchase the restaurant as is. I'm just trying to back up my database file and if I am unsucessful, then I need to know how to recover without spending a lot of money on repairs or a new system.
