Restored volumes are identical to backup volumes, readonly and
non-replicated. The only reliable method at the moment is to create the
new volume and rsync -av /path/to/old/ /path/to/new.

Support for volume migration and relocation should become possible at
some point. The recent volume handling overhaul in the client was a
first step towards this.
