Replace corrupt GPO

I have GPO that contains about 200 settings from both the User and Computer hive. Also it sets both policy and  preference options. Because this GPO has some issues, I will need to create a new GPO and import all the settings. The old GPO will be unlinked, the new GPO linked.  
Has anyone done this and experienced adverse effects? Theoretically, since everything is the same, nothing should happen.

You can just import the settings from the backup of the old GPO - again, it all depends on what is the issue with the old GPO. If it is a problem with the constituent files, I guess the backup/restore shouldn't work as expected. If the issue is with some settings, there's no point in performing this right?
