  • Have a look at this Video: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/videos/netbackup7-vmware-backup-configuration-file-restore

    It is also described in the manual:
    NetBackup for VMware Guide  http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH127072

    See p. 33:

    2 Select the FlashBackup-Windows policy type.
    The FlashBackup-Windows policy type is recommended for most environments. Use it to back up individual drives (Windows), or to back up the entire virtual machine (any supported virtual machine).
    Note the following about the FlashBackup-Windows policy type:
    ■ Increases the backup speed as compared to standard file-order backup methods, if the virtual machine is heavily populated with small files.
    ■ Can create a backup from which you can restore selected files or the full virtual machine.
