If you have setup incremental backup then yes, you can restore it without taking entire VHD backup.

Use OSFMount to mount the VHD...you will be able to see it like a normal HDD so you can explore it right away,,,
Hint: i don't know if it was for .VMDK only when i used it but when you mount an image don't select the 1st option for the whole image but the 2nd that correspongs exactly to your imaged HDD.
