No, I'm afraid not, VDP must be installed on a VMware datastore, so either VMFS or NFS.

If you Windows server is running NFS, the ESXi host could connect to the NFS export on Windows.

Andrew,
To clarify, the appliance must be installed on a VMware datastore but i should be able to set up an NFS share on a windows box to the esata?
Thanks

Windows Server does support NFS, and NFS exports can be connected to ESXi.

and then you can install VDP on NFS.
