I typically use Import/Export to move content around, and is really your best option if the content is a sub-site or list.  I prefer using the tool on codeplex called SharePoint Content Deployment Manager.  

Backup and Restore is used to move whole site collections between environments (prod to test), or is used to backup a site before deploying a solution or making a big change.  The backup is more encapsulating than an export.

Also, the backup will include security groups.  You can choose to not include security if you do an export.
