Trying to combine separate backup scripts

I'm trying to set up 2 different backup scripts to make my VMWare backups manageable. I have setup VMWare shared folders so all frequently-changing Windows user files are available directly in OSX.

Script 1: every day, backup all files except the VMWare folder, smart update

Script 2: once a month, backup just the VMWare folder (included scripts = exclude all files.dset), smart update

I am aiming for something that will give me a backup where all OSX files are always no more than 24-hours out of date, and the virtual machine file is always no more than 1 month out of date.

Is this correct? I did an experiment and Script-2 wiped out all the backups done by Script-1, presumably due to the Smart Update. I expect Script-1 will likewise kill my monthly VMWare backup.

Is there a better way to do this? Am I misunderstanding something?
