Site collection backup and restore in Sharepoint 2013

Hi in sharepoint 2013 or 2010 by using these following commands we can take back up of site collection:

Open powershell in Run as Admin mode.

Backup-SPSite -Identity <SiteCollectionURL> -Path <BackupFile>

<SiteCollectionURL> your site collection url which you want to back up.
<BackupFile> path where .bak will be created.

For Restore we do:
Restore-SPSite -Identity <SiteCollectionURL> -Path <BackupFile>  -Force

Remember Force parameter is absolutely required as you are overwriting one existing site collection.
