If I understand you correctly, are you just trying to backup the .vbk files with DPM and ignore the .vrb ones?

If so, when setting up the protection group within DPM, there is a link in the bottom right of the selected items screen to 'exclude files'. Just exclude any with the .vrb extension. We do this to copy the full VEEAM backup from disk to tape within DPM without the additional space overhead of all the delta files.

Also, nowadays you can just put into use new type of job called “backup to copy” which, by default, skips .vrb from processing and copy only .vib/.vbk files. Thanks.
