copy tftp: startup-config

You will be asked for the ip address or hostname of the tftp server
And then the path to the config file. Usually the path is relative to the root of the tftp server which is usually a directory called tftpboot.

I have done the following in order to re-install the "good configuration" but the sh running-configuration is showing the current one, what step am i missing?                                                
It seems that the good configuration has been reloaded ok

Router#copy tftp: startup-config                                
Address or name of remote host []? 192.168.0.2                                              
Source filename []? run-conf.txt                                
Destination filename [startup-config]?                                      
Accessing tftp://192.168.0.2/run-conf.txt...                                            
Loading run-conf.txt from 192.168.0.2 (via Vlan1): !

ok, it worked but using the following command:

copy tftp: running-config

So what is the difference between the 2:

copy tftp: running-config
copy tftp: startup-config
