It works! No error from command line.

how much space was used after restoring? seems to me like the 280G referenced in the config where too little for whatever reason (better compression before? some other overhead-inducing storage setting? ...)

The original container has:

/dev/loop11 276G 241G 24G 92% /

The restored container is almost the same (some data were added today):

datastore/subvol-114-disk-0 350G 277G 74G 79% /

P.S. I use 350 instead of 500 (like in your example)

that's not almost the same, but 36GB (more than 10%) more?

The real difference was small, about 3GB. My fault was that I paste you the result after 24h of production

I still have the original backup file, I hope to find some times to makes a new restore and check again the used space after the restore
