I started bitcoin-qt with --reindex and pruning on.

Can I safely shutdown and restart?

If yes how? Do I have to pass --reindex again or will bitcoin-qt remember and continue from where it stopped?

No, Bitcoin Core will remember that it was reindexing and continue the reindex.

First I made a backup of datadir. Next I started again with --reindex and it started from scratch.

Makes sense but I don't want that.

So I replayed backup and start without --reindex. It started where it had stopped before.

Andrew, thanks for the quick and helpful response!
