Today I came in the office and found that my VDR software has 8 backups running and noone of them is completed( between 10% to 95% completed). Backups are started 12 hours ago and they had to completed till now.
There are active snapshot created for this 8 VMs and now I don't know how to proceed.

I was not able to stop the backup job. It was grayed and nothing can be done. The job is shown as running.
But I found a solution on this link:

-------------------------solution from thread -----------------------
I had logged a call with support and that is what they said......... /etc/init.d/datarecovery stop
Even although that command 'failed' according to the output, it did stop the datarecovery process.
I then started it up again and noticed, through the vsphere client, that the snapshots were being deleted. This completed successfully and all is now well.
