Right, we don't run the Kubernetes parts as a container; it's just a process on the VM (in the Windows case, the WSL VM/container). And since K3s defaults to using sqlite, backups would involve turning off Kubernetes (to make sure it's not in use) and backing up
/var/lib/rancher/k3s/server
per documentation.
