What do these restore options in backup exec mean when restoring a Lotus Notes database?

  1. Retain original IDs
    • Select this option to restore the original database IDs.
  2. Assign new database ID
    • Select this option to assign new IDs to the database.
  3. Assign new database ID and replica ID
    • Select this option to assign new IDs to the database. A replica ID is used to synchronize two or more databases that are being replicated in the Lotus Domino environment. You can assign a new replica ID during a restore to prevent other databases under replication from overwriting the restored database files.

When restoring a mailbox do any of these options overwrite the data or just restore missing records? I need to restore some mailbox data but I do not know if these options will overwrite any changes since the backup.
