More information

When moving a machine to a Backup account registered in the same End-user company, backup plans will be kept. Backup chain will continue with a new full backup. When backing up to the Cloud storage, a new archive will be created (when using Initial Seeding: new Initial Seeding is required).

When moving a machine to a Backup account registered in another End-user company, backup plans need to be recreated. Alternatively you can apply a backup plan available in the new Backup account.
