Staging copy issue

I created a staging copy of my site and now I am trying to push it live. However since I made the staging copy, many forum posts have been made which I don't want to overwrite. Can you tell me which files or databases are used by simple:press so that I can exclude them.

For example since the forum members are stored in the wordpress user base, I imagine that I would need to exclude the wp_users file from the push in order not to overwrite new forum members, right?

And here is a similar question. The answer is probably the same as for my first question. If I want to restore the forum from a backup copy, which files am I looking for exactly?

Core user data is all stored in the WP users and usermeta tables. All SP specific tables all begin with the prefix sf.
