2 questions from new user

Hello, I am a brand new registered user and I have a couple of questions:

- I have created a bootable copy of my HD ('Macintosh HD') on to an external FW drive ('Backup') that has still 29GB of free space; can I use such available space for data or if I boot from 'Backup' I could have problems when booting/working from there?

- In case of problems with the internal HD, to fix everything as it was before the crash, shall I just copy via SD all the data from the external bootable disc ('Backup') to the internal HD ('Macintosh HD') and I will be all set as before? This is not very clear on the manual:

Similarly, if you’ve stored a bootable backup on an external FireWire drive,
and your Macintosh is capable of starting up from FireWire, hold down the
Option key when you start, select the FireWire drive, and use SuperDuper!
to perform the restore.

What does exactly 'Perform the restore' mean? To copy all data back from ('Backup') to the internal HD ('Macintosh HD'), basically a vice-versa operation compared to the usual backing-up actions?
