i backup and restore with TWRP 2-3 times a week when i test the different 4.4 KK ROMs for the note 3. as i understand it (and practice), when restoring backups only restore the System, Boot and Data partitions. this has not failed me one time nor has it caused any issues. i recall that restoring the EFS partition caused device stability issues with earlier versions of the TWRP custom recoveries.
