I used to use another backup software to backup our VMs, it allowed me to select the vmdk files individually or backup the VM as a whole. This is great for DR processes where you need to restore VMs without additional DATA drives and can save significant time on backups. At the moment, if you want to backup a VM you must back it up as a whole which is inconvinient for different VM applications.
