WIndows 2008 Enterprise Hyper V backups using BackupExec 12.5

Running Windows Server 2008 Enterprise 64bit
Using BackupExec 12.5 with all applied updates
We have 3 Virtual enviros running

2 questions:
1) Does BackupExec 12.5 fully backup the virtual enviros? We're basically selecting all drives/volumes/everything on the server on the backup job.

2) Where are data files stored for Hyper V? Is a snapshot required before each backup?

Thanks!!!!!

To properly backup your virtual server you need Agent for Microsoft Virtual Servers.
Otherwise online virtual machines will not be baced up properly.
