How does restore behave when restoring to a live root file system (despite the 
recommended split of /, swap, /usr, ... I am using a single partition of 
freebsd slice for the complete system + swap + encrypted partition for some 
data + different hdd for photos)?

I want to be sure that the restored system is exactly the same as on backup, 
that is to preferrably use -r option.
