VMware: VMware Data Recovery: The Unmount operation failed because the Destination may be in use

After some failed backups and warnings in the even log I decided to troubleshoot the backup job. I tried to remount my “storage destination” but received this warning:

The Unmount operation failed because the Destination may be in use. Please try again later

Solution:

After reading KB1018060 and removing the store.lck file I was able to re-open/dismount/mount the storage destination again

Browse to the BackupStore folder:

cd /SCSI-0\:1/VMwareDataRecovery/BackupStore/

Remove the lock file:

rm -rf store.lck
