There are several levels of restore.

Restore All, delete and replace ALL your data, including reloading quotes from internet. Rule of thumb, about 10 seconds by stock. Major issue with it, outside of the time, is the fact that manually imported data will not be restored and will have to be re-imported from files.

Restore Lines and Restore Investments are instantaneous and only restore, either Lines, Comments and Fibos, or all data relative to investments.

Restore is irreversible. In general, it is recommended to create a new backup before the restore operation… just in case.
