When you enable Perform block level incremental backup in the policy, NetBackup uses VMware's Changed Block Tracking feature to reduce the backup size. Since this option works at the block level (not at the file level), it applies only to backups of the entire virtual machine. It cannot be used when the policy backup selections list specifies individual files.
