regardless of vzdump let me explain how it works and what should be backuped.

root/VEID is a directory where everything is mounted, it is a filesystem how VE sees it. It has /proc and /sysfs mounted inside and can have other filesystems mounted or bind mounted by the user inside.

private/VEID is actually a storage for VE files. It is how it really looks like on the disk. In the simplest case it looks pretty much the same as root.
So this is the directory which should be backuped and restored if needed. i.e. private, not root. Even if VE is started, private - not root should be backup.

Hope this helps!
