 +By default NEMS-OSB will assume you are restoring to the same device that was used when the Off-Site Backup was created. However this may not always be the case (ie., perhaps your device failed and you need to restore to a new device).

-Your OSB account ​is tied directly ​to your NEMS server hardwareTherefore, if you change your hardware, a direct ​restore ​will not be possible. In that case, you must contact me directly for assistance.+Every Off-Site Backup ​is hard-tied to its originating HWID. You must restore ​your backup to the new device before closing the old NEMS-OSB accountOnce a NEMS-OSB account is closed or moved to another HWIDthe old backups are no longer recoverable (for security reasons). You do not need NEMS-OSB account on your new device to restore, ​as long as you know the originating HWID.
