We've been using VMWare Data Recovery (VDR) since version 1.0 and are currently using 1.2
The number of Report Items has grown to around 10k which results in slow loading. Having log information for such a long period is of no use to us.
Is there any way to clear reports items? Can it be made selectively, for example delete all events older that a certain period?
Please see the following post http://communities.vmware.com/thread/246994?tstart=0 this explains the method for clearing down the log files.
I don't know of a way to selectively delete log files
As your first link suggests, there was not GUI to do this before version 1.2. Glad you found it as this avoids the need of recreating the backup job.
I must have missed this new feature in the 1.2 documentation…
