License transfer to another thumbdrive? [6.11.1]

After testing, I'm loving the platform and ready to purchase my first license.  I notice that the license is tied to the specific USB thumbdrive used at the time of registration.  My concern is that I used an old inexpensive thumbdrive for testing that will eventually (probably sooner than later) fail.  What is the process to recover when, in future, that drive fails?  I have a backup of this thumbdrive stored safely with my cloud backup provider.  Is it as simple as restoring that backup to a new thumbdrive and booting with it?

keep a recent backup of your flashdrive

Any setting you make in the webUI is stored on flash so it can be reapplied at boot. If you make a setting and it isn't backed up it can't be restored, simple as that.


There have been cases where someone used an old backup that had the wrong disk assignments. This can actually cause data loss if a former parity drive was reused as a data drive
