Solution

Ensure that the correct parameters are used in the emergency restore command.

2.  The backed up files are located on the local R: drive with a network destination
3.  The backed up files are located on the network drive with a local destination

DLOCommandu -EmergencyRestore "x:\DLOStorage\MyDomain-Administrator\.dlo" -w P@ssw0rd -ap "\\RemoteServer\<ShareName>"
DLOCommandu -EmergencyRestore "\\servername\username\.dlo" -w P@ssw0rd -ap "\\LocalServer\D$\LocalPath"
