If i had VM with three disks like 101,102,103 and i backup 101,103
so when restore the backup (overwrite) what happen to 102
Best Regards
For VMs, disks that are not in the backup will be kept as unused disks. (EDIT: for completeness, I should mention that the Bus+ID combination e.g. scsi0 is used to detect this).

For containers, there is a big warning already:
CT 121 - Restore. This will permanently erase current CT data. Mount point volumes are also erased.
