    I've got question or a scenario. If I isntall CommVault's Windows File System agent on a virtual machine and configured the Storage Resources / Policy to only backup System State and a certain drive like E: and F: (not including the OS drive, "C:\"). Would I be able to do a full VM restore without backing up the OS drive?

    At a bare minimum you would need all critical system state components listed here:

    I would honestly test it to see if it would work out. Not sure if there are any critical files that your hypervisor would want that aren't covered by the OS system state.
