Hey Seffan,

I can't answer your questions about vzpbackup, however I can say that using rsync (or borgbackup) with /vz/root/VEID mounts does work. Restoring is a matter of:

1. Creating a new container OR using the saved container conf file to re-create the same container
2. Mount the ploop disk
3. Completing a full restore (ensure to use rsync's numeric IDs parameter and save all perms, OR use borgbackup as it will do all this for you) to the mount point
4. Unmount
5. Start container

Borgbackup is pretty handy as it handles your rsyncing, deduping, encryption, and compression for you.
