No it does not.

Only 7.5 servers support 7.5 clients.

7.0.1 server supports 7.0.x and 6.x clients.

Clients can be a higher patch level, e.g. 7.5.0.3 master and 7.5.0.6 client.

See Version Compatibility TN: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH29677  

MASTER Compatibility list: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH59978

You will need to upgrade you master in order to backup 7.5 clients.

As per my post above, you will need to upgrade your master to 7.5. Best to upgrade to 7.5.0.6.

Your 7.0.1 master cannot backup 7.5 clients.

Please read through the Version Compatibility TN in my post above.
