I would immediately refer you to VMware Support, for them to investigate and look through your logs.

The repository, could be damaged beyond repair.

What is the current size, and how long have you been using the repository ?


In the past we have created a new repository, restored any backups we needed (e.g. archived), destoyed and created a new repository.

(and it's common when reaching it's limit, or older repos)

Hi there fairly new to VDR but what I know is on the particular SCSCI it has a capacity of 1023GB and in the Gui it shows  125GB free , I believe the repository is about a year or so old

What are the steps in re creating the repository ?
Just a format of the whole SCSI mounted DISK ?  

Thanks for the answers thus far

1 one year old VDR repo is old!

Add a new disk, format and mount.

and then start backing up to this new repo.
