Databases updating simultaneously

I have managed to create a second copy of my "live" database, for
software testing purposes.

Inspecting the properties of the new database, everything seems in
order.  The logical file name is the same, which I believe is fine, and
the physical database (and log file name) is different.

However, despite the fact that there is no application currently
accessing the "testing" copy, both databases are seemingly being
updated simultanously.  I can tell this from the physical file sizes on
the server, which are identical, and growing at the same rate.

Does anyone have any suggestions why this might be happening - and how
I can stop it?

Thanks in anticipation!
