  • Use Backup utility available in the OS to generate a backup file.

    Copy the backup file to your computer:

    1) FTP(if you have public IP or if VM and local computer are on same network) 

    2) SMB(if VPN is created or if VM and local computer are on same network).

    3) Make your local computer drives available via RDP settings to the VM and copy the backup file.

    Hope this helps.
