I'm pretty sure SAVRSTxxx uses save files. the neat thing is that the save file is transferred to the target system as it gets created so you so not have the extra storage on the source system.

I ran a SAVRSTOBJ and on the target system and the object description detail:

Save/Restore information:
Save date/time . . . . . . . . . . . : 09/29/15 08:46:10
Restore date/time . . . . . . . . . : 09/29/15 08:47:31
Save command . . . . . . . . . . . . : SAVOBJ
Device type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Save file
Save file . . . . . . . . . . . . . : QTEMP/OBCSAVF

I think you may have memories of an older version. SAVRSTxxx does not use
save files or large working space.

When you use an ObjectConnect command, the system moves the object directly
to the target system without using save files or distribution queues.
ObjectConnect provides better performance than other methods for moving
objects between systems, and ObjectConnect does not require additional disk
space to store an intermediate copy of the object that is being moved.

Object Connect is free (but if not already installed, add it.
You have 3 options to connect:
.Local area network (LAN) or remote communications line with Advanced
Program-to-Program Communication (APPC) and Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking
.LAN or remote communications line with Transmission Control
Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) with AnyNet* or Enterprise Extender
.Fiber optic bus with OptiConnect.

We use the IP definitions and is fast. We are slightly smaller, maybe .3 Tb
in a developer refresh, Saved & restored within 2 hours (Power 7+ single
processor). The Save is while active.
We do save access paths so no rebuild. We do restore over the existing lib
so 99.99% objects - only data is changing (we do argue over whether this is
a good idea or not..).
It does start moving & restoring data before finished saving.
We do stop other processing in receiving partition.

Ditto SAVRSTOBJ and/or SAVRSTLIB for small amount of data.

However, large amounts of data. .5 tb could take long and use a large
amount of temp space for the temporary savf.

Another solution, which we use often, is to do a RSTLIB or RSTLIBBRM from
your latest production save.
We do a full save on Production every night, following the save RSTLIBBRM on
DEV is run to refresh DEV.
We've automated the entire process, save is 2 hours, restore is 2 hours, P7
LTO5 fiber drives.

SAVRSTOBJ Hands down the best way for such things. Can be on line, can
be batch, scheduled etc. Maintains all attributes about the object.
