Replicate org with data


Is there a way to make an exact replica of an org (including data in the objects).

Hi Prateek,
You can use force.com IDE to replicate the org data. https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.eclipse.meta/eclipse/ide_install.htm  
Get your metadata in an eclipse project and create a new project with configurations of new salesforce org.
Use eclipse inbuilt feature to compare 2 folders/files to copy data from the old project to another.
Refer to https://blog.jeffdouglas.com/2008/07/15/migrating-salesforcecom-configurations-with-the-metadata-api-forcecom-migration-tool/ for detailed example.
For exporting data use can use data loader, download CSV files for different objects and import it into your new Org. https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.dataLoader.meta/dataLoader/ 
Choose this as best answer if it helps.
