This is a fresh install and haven't been able to successfully restore a file.
VDP has been End of Availability for over a year now and is essentially a "dead" product. So may I ask why you're installing this anew?
I recently acquired vCenter and vSphere licenses from our parent company and the person who helped me setup vCenter and the SAN told me to use VDP because that is what he used for awhile and had access to it. I am assuming it was also due to it was free and they didn't want to spend money on licenses for other products. I was not aware it was end of availability.
I can understand that, however knowing what you now know (that VDP isn't being sold and is end-of-the-line), I would strongly urge you not to use VDP but choose one of any number of other, more robust solutions from the vast VMware partner ecosystem out there. The most prominent one of these applications is Veeam as it seems to be a community favorite here as well.
