Default Expected results with OEQB restore?

When you do a OEQB restore, is the result a complete reinstall of OE, or
just a total overwrite and replacement of dbx files and the wab file(s)?

The respective dbx folders are replaced with the ones that existed in the
OEQB restore I assume, but are newer ones left alone or does OEQB restore
delete them?

Are accounts lost with a OEQB restore, or replaced?
Account Passwords lost?

It does not reinstall OE. It restores the files. If you have dbx files that are not in the restored message store, then its likely they will not be visible in OE, since the restored folders.dbx doesn't include them. You can manualy import such as follows: www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx#imp1

If you look at that referenced page, what restoring does is to merge the registry keys and then overwrite existing dbx files with the same name. It does not delete the existing files, if they have a different name.

Your accounts are preserved, but you will likely have to reintroduce the passwords.

Does it work the same even if you move the OEQB backed up file from an old
pc to a new pc and do the restore there?

Yes you can do that, but its best to delete the registry keys prior to merging the old ones.
