what difference between EXPORT and BACKUP of site operation

Posted By :Sagar Pardeshi     Posted Date :February 28, 2011    Points :25   Category :SharePoint 
1) stsadm -o backup/restore URL-http://serverName

With the URL and filename parameters, it allows you to backup site or site collection
when we restore the file then it generates the new GUID for the site collection

2) stsadm -o import/export URL-http://serverName

This is the only standard operation to store the site, it can also to be used to export the site
but here the drawback is as:
It not only changes the GUID of the site or site collection but it also changes the GUIDs of LIST, WEPART, SUBSITES and ITEMS
