First, you can just copy your Virtual machines folder in your c: drive to your backup location and whenever you need to, you just copy it back then choose open existing virtual machine machine in vmware and locate the virtual machine file. Regarding using xp backup both incremental and differential are the same except that diferential marks the files as backed up, for reference purposes.
