Troubleshooting Question

To backup a VM vmware can I just backup the entire virtual machine folder? If so how do I restore it

Last Modified: 2020-10-07
Provided are two screenshots.
We use barrcuda msp cloud backup, and it's failing to see the VM the traditional way.
My questions is can I just backup the entire VM folder marked XPSERVER.
if I can backup that whole folder, which file on the below image is basically the vmdk I would select when restoring the machine so it runs correctly.
