How to copy a system versioning table to another table without loosing the history records

Hi,

I am looking for a way to make a backup of a system versioning table.  COPY TABLE ... AS does not work with temporal tables so I am looking for an alternative way.  Dropping the system versioning on a table drops the history records, however we want to keep the history records in order to reload them.  We also have valid time on the table.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
