What is the difference between "Backup restore" and "Copy of a different database"?

When you go into the database manager screen and select "Restore", the "Mode" field gives you a choice of "Backup Restore" or "Copy of an existing database".  What's the difference between these two choices?

Hi,

"Backup Restore" : you will restore an archive from your local repository

"Copy of an existing database" : you will duplicate from an existing database on your server

Wouldn't one choose "Duplicate" from the manager menu, instead of "Restore," if they wanted to duplicate an existing database? Why would that be an option under "Restore"?
