But I deleted the last restore point from the end of the chain. This should not corrupt the chain.It is possible. However, note that if you delete restore point from the middle of a chain, the end of it becomes useless.
I had to delete the files in the filesystem. There is no way in Veeam to delete a single restore point, only all restore points of a backed up system. This is the missing function which I asked for above.How did you delete the files, using "Remove from Inventory" or "Delete from Disk" option?
This should be a basic function accessible to everyone. Because otherwise as described above there is no way to keep old backups if the disk is full. The only supported way in that case seems to be to throw all backups away and to start a fresh backup chain.Database can be clean through technical Support
But that is not possible.That`s why you need to delete them through the GUI.

VIBs were not greyed. After upgrading to V9 they were actually greyed out.If you did first two steps and the vib(s) is not greyed, please contact Veeam support team.
To delete a single restore point you need:
1. Delete the .vib manually in the file system
2. Perform a rescan
3. Remove greyed-out restore point from UI.

Have you discussed this already?Agree. We will discuss it with R&D team. Thanks for the feedback!
