It won't make much difference if you brake the job to backup particular virtual disks separately. The reason why you see the error is that a snapshot is created on the same datastore where main VM configuration files are located (in your case it 1 MB datastore, which doesn't meet the requirements). As you probably know when snapshot is taken it affects all disks attached to the VM and the only way to exclude the disk from snapshotting is to make it independent, thus meaning you won't be able to backup it either. To resolve the issue you need to reformat the datastore (with VM disk1 on) with a larger VMFS block size.
