If nb is the NotebookObject of the notebook in question then execute:

SetOptions[nb, Saveable -> False]

Export["testSave.nb", nb, "NB"]

SetOptions[nb, Saveable -> True]

The last SetOptions is so that you can continue to work on the
notebook yourself.

So what is happening here is that you are setting the Savable option
for the notebook and then exporting it as another notebook of a
different name. Of course "testSave.nb" should actually be a path and
name of your choosing...

Hope this helps,
