    There is an article by MS about Hyper-V backups.

    As a rule of a thumb, back up the Hyper-V server, but do not backup the VHD files. Back up the virtual machines just like ordinary computers. This way you save a lot of storage, as backing up VHD files quickly adds up. Sometimes VHD backups are necessary, you have to think carefully your environment's requirements.

      There's also this blog post from Microsoft's Virtualization Team Blog.
      Sorry the answers are not clear than that, but with the info you gave (that means: none!), it's all you can hope for...
