I'm new to VMWare...i've installed several workstations now and would like to run one as a mini-file server for a small peer-to-peer network.  

What would be the best way to perform backups to an ext HDD or NAS while the VMware is powered on (like a normal running PC)....i dont want to shutdown the session then perform backup, etc....i need it to be more automated than that.
