Run PrtErrLog.  This will show you hardware errors on the system. First run it 
with the defaults. This shows you the errors for the last 24 hours. Then widen 
the time period.

Are the damaged objects the same/similar names each time you run the reclaim?

Theoretically you can dspobjd *all/*all to an outfile and examine the damaged 
object fld in the outfile. If you run that every day, maybe that would help 
determine when the damage is occuring.
