Default [Q] Installed Gapps on system partition - problem?

Hi. I am new to safestrapping and i rushed into it. Instead of creating a rom slot before flashing gapps, i just backed up the stock slot and flashed gapps onto it. Everything works fine of course, but:

1. can i just restore the backed up data for the slot to get back to stock?

2. should i restore and flash onto a new slot to be safe if possible?

Thanks in advance.

Why not post in the gapps or safestrap thread? Those get replies all the time. I get my questions answered within a few hours normally. This entire help section of the forums gets almost no traffic, because everyone posts their problems in whatever tutorial thread they are using to update their kindles.

I have been coming to the hdx forums for months now, and I only ever check HDX General, and HDX Android Development. This is my first time in the help section.
