Sandboxes and refresh

Hello there,

I am trying to create a backup of all my metadata from the Full Sandbox. I have 3 orgs I'm working with
1. A Production Org
2. A Full Sandbox (which I need to refresh)
3. A Developer Pro Sandbox (which I just created). I'm assuming this is a metadata copy of Production

I am planning to download my critical metadata from the Full sandbox using the Force.com IDE - I already have the classes, pages, triggers, components, and will also download the custom objects that I need. 

I have one question: if I refresh my Full Sandbox, will that also refresh the Developer Pro Sandbox?

No. Each sandbox must be refreshed independently.
