I need to remove some damaged restore points, but what do i need to do after i mark them for delete, i.e. how do i delete them or run a manual reclaim job?
what is the ramification to restore points that exist after the damaged restore point, since backups are incrementals, how can i restore from anything post the dmg'd restore point since it would be missing some information?
I was wondering how you initiated integrity check. I posted this as a question but I need to resolve this issue right now. I am running into a similar issue as yours and I need to manually start integrity check.
from the vsphere client, go to vmware data recovery add-in. connect to VDR appliance. login. click the configuration tab. goto destinations.
select the datastore you want to perform check on. make sure it's mounted. then perform integrity check (menu at top) or (right click menu).
You can find the procedure that your need.
Remove Damaged Restore Points
Corrupt restore points, which are identified during integrity checks, should be removed. Restore points may
be identified as damaged during transient connection failures. If transient connection failures are possible,
check if damaged restore point issues are resolved after connections are restored.
Before you can remove damaged restore points, you must have restore points in a functioning Data Recovery
1 In the vSphere Client, select Home > Solutions and Applications > VMware Data Recovery.
2 Click the Reports tab and double-click the integrity check that failed.
The Operations Log for the event opens in a separate window. Note which restore points triggered the
3 Close the Operations Log and click the Restore tab.
4 From the Filter dropdown list, select Damaged Restore Points.
Available restore points are filtered to display only the virtual machines with damaged restore points. It
may be necessary to expand a virtual machine's node to display the damaged restore point.
5 Select damaged restore points for removal and click Mark for Delete.
6 Initiate an integrity check.
Completing an integrity check causes all restore points marked for deletion to be removed.
7 Review the results of the integrity check to ensure no damaged restore points remain.
This procedure does not work. I always have errors when peroformingintegrity check. Damaged restore points are not deleted.

How can I manually delete these damaged items?
Thanks in advance.
Has any found a solutions for this ?
Same issue over here, damaged restore points are marked for deletion, however Integrity Check does not delete them.

I have exactly the same issue here too, damaged restore points are marked for deletion, however Integrity Check does not delete them.
Starting to lose patience with this now, I'm on the brink of blowing away my volumes and starting afresh.
At least in my case, it appears to have been a backup filesystem that needed an fsck. Stopped the VDR daemons, umounted the filesystem, and ran an fsck and it seems much happier now. The clue was a message on the console of the VDR appliance.
