The existing one is overwritten. I would suggest to save your current
filesystem using a USB stick or via network (ftp or nfs).
I don't know how you filesystem tree is but some systems have the /var
folder physically in RAM, so you could use 
cat /dev/mtdblock1 /var/original_fs and afterwards use ftp to transfer
the file.
