Backup Exec 12.5 Restore / Migration

Hello, i have to reaplace a file server and need to migrate the data from one server to the other. I will do this via backup exec with tapes

The catch is that the replacement server already has a pre-created folder with some applicatons installed that i will just need to execute on the clients to install from the new server. In other words, the old folder has the same name as the new server but it will not be restored


OldServer                                                 > NewServer
Volume E                                                   > Volume E
Folder1                                                      > Folder1
Folder2 (this folder will not be restored)   > Folder2 (already created and installed with new app)
Folder3                                                       > Folder3
Folder4                                                       > Folder4

My question is if I grab Folder1, Folder3, and Folder4 and run a restore to the E volume in the new server, will the restore delete Folder2 which has already been created?
