Is there any way to change the automatic backups when using web deploy to only backup the virtual application that is being updated? We currently have lots of virtual applications underneath a single website in IIS, which causes the deploy time to skyrocket
as it has to back up every single folder under the website.

Try perhaps http://blogs.msdn.com/b/webdev/archive/2013/01/09/real-scenario-folder-deployment-scenarios-with-msdeploy.aspx
You'll find a specialized forum at
http://forums.iis.net/1144.aspx/1?Web+Deployment+Tool+MS+Deploy+ which could be better if you need further help...

Sorry I probably should have specified that I'm not calling MSBuild directly. I'm using the built in Web Deploy publishing option in Visual Studio 2013.

My hope was that it could be configured server side for publishing (not sure but I expected you could tweak the command that runs on the server ?, don't know)
If you need further help I believe that the forum I mentioned earlier could be better as this is a quite specialized msdeploy question.
