As long as you catch all the paths, then yes, it should work.

Be *VERY* careful when editing the dump though, and definitely do not
trust editors (even if you can find one that can open such a big file).
The dump file contains a mix of binary and text data, and some
editors/tools can't resist the urge to change some line endings around,
which will horribly break the file.
