You could boot into a debian linux with the proxmox-backup-client installed and then use that to backup the entire physical disks to your PBS.
Or your could share the physical Win hosts filesystems as SMB shares, mount them to a debian and backup the SMB shares using the proxmox-backup-client. There is no client for Windows yet (and not planned for the near future).

thanks for the quick response, so, I can only use virtual machines on proxmox, if I have a virtual machine on hyper V, I can't?
