Copy Production to Developer Account

Is there an EASY way to copy my Production org to a Developer account?  Can I use the Deploy to Server option in Force.com IDE?  i.e., open my Production account in IDE, select all metadata, select Deploy to Server, then enter the login credentials for my Developer account?


I realize that ANT can be used for this purpose, but I was looking for something more user-friendly...







Yes, you could use Eclipse IDE and follow the steps that you desribed.


Also you could try this. If you need the a copy of your Production environment, just do a sandbox refresh. All the metadata along with classes, vf pages, etc, would get copied over. (Login to production, click setup --> datamangement --> sandbox and select the sandbox that you want to refresh).
