Backup files within a XP VM

I have been trying to baqckup files that reside on a VM XP machine so far the only way i have managed to do this but not auto is to install backup software on the XP and then run the shortcut from the win 7 machine i have tried to setup a task on the win 7 machine however to run it i need to enter in the shortcut which if i check the properties of the app in the VM it is

%SystemRoot%\system32\rundll32.exe %SystemRoot%\system32\VMCPropertyHandler.dll,LaunchVMSal "Windows XP Mode" "||31a59b7d" "NetBak Replicator"

I am not sure what kind of VM system you are running. But I know from my experience with vBox, that the virtual partition is defined as a file in the guest system. If I wanted to backup the system together with it's files, I only had to copy this file in the guest system.

Why not attach the VHD as a drive in Win7 under Disk Management and backup the files from there?
