This can be caused by the presence of VMware snapshots on the VM.

The admin guide for the release you are on should list the supported partition types if you have not tried FLR prior its worth checking the filesystem is supported.

You allways have the option to fully restore the VM and ge the files that way if its critical,

if the server is Windows OS, open disk management if the impacted disk is dynamic instead of basic you will not be able to perform a file level restore from the plug in tool, your option is full VM restore to a new VM with different name.

be sure you disconnect the new VM vNIC otherwise your clone and the source are the same server for your network.

 

Thanks,

We facing the same issue and find out it was a bug with the communication from vCenter to OVC. It seeams that the wrong IP Addresses of the OVC are used. You seeams to need to block the Federation and Storage IP of the OVCs.
Check on OVC the restapi Log and on vCenter vsphere-ui vigor Log....

tail -n 30 /var/log/rest/svt-rest-api.log

grep "Could not connect" /var/log/vmware/vsphere-ui/logs/vsphere_client_virgo.log

But there are still other bugs so try to restore from other backups in our case just some backups are not usable for FLR
