Not enough details.
Are you backing up the VM from hyper-v?
Are you backing up the VM from within the VM?
Are you backing up the files on the VM or making an image/snapshot?
Does $storage-provider have a preferred protocol?
NFS typically can be expanded on the fly if the needs increase.
iSCSI typically needs “work” like expanding the partition then expanding
the filesystem when more space is needed.
