Refreshing PBX with distro and backup

Has anyone refreshed your PBX by backing up an up to date version 13 and reloading the FreePbx distro then restoring the backup? Did it work? Any suggestion on how to do this?

I have wanted to, but never tried.

Personally, I’d buy a second disk for the matchine before trying.

I have done it quote a few times. I have had issues with a few errors but over came them fairly quicky
