You can restore a backup created on a system with a different architecture. However the graph databases which are architecture-dependent so they won't be readable and writable from the newer one.
You have two options.
After install and restore of the backup you can delete the old database, executing the following commands:
/etc/init.d/collectd stop /etc/init.d/vnstat stop rm -rf /var/log/rrd/* rm -f /var/log/vnstat/* /etc/init.d/collectd start /etc/init.d/vnstat start
Otherwise you can dump the databases into files, therefore restore them into new install.
On old system, before create a backup, dump the data into files.
rrdtool dump /var/log/rrd/hddshutdown-sd*.rrd /hddshutdown-sd*.xml rrdtool dump /var/log/rrd/hddtemp-sd*.rrd /hddtemp-sd*.xml
and do it for all the .rrd files contained into
Do a backup, save the resulting file.
Install the new architecture, restore the backup, then import data
rrdtool restore /hddshutdown-sd*.xml /var/log/rrd/hddshutdown-sd*.rrd rrdtool restore /hddtemp-sd*.xml /var/log/rrd/hddtemp-sd*.rrd
