Depends on how big your files are.  If they are 'huge' (your definition may
vary), saving the access path eliminates the need for the receiving system
to rebuild the access path.  

For a time estimate, remember how long it took to build the last logical
file over your files.  That's about how long it'll take for the system to
rebuild your access paths if you don't save them.

If you don't save the access path, the System will re-build it when it is
restored.
