I have a backup taken with below code from SharePoint 2013 site URL: http://sharepoint/sites/test/

Backup-SPSite -Identity http://sharepoint/sites/test/ -Path C:\Backup\BackupTest.bak

Now If I want to restore this backup to the site collection with Explicit Inclusion which is http://sharepoint/test

Restore-SPSite -Identity http://sharepoint/test -Path C:\Backup\BackupTest.bak  

Will this scenario work for restoring the site with above code?

As long backup is from same version of SharePoint (i tjink you are moving within same farm) and healthy backup(Not corrupted) then it will work.

We restored the sites between farm / web apps using same method, never had issie.

  • Yes the version is the same. Just different site collection. Currently I don't have permission to check the same that's why I posted this question if someone had the same situation.
