Everything. Only allow through what you want to allow.

Alternatively, use a different method than VPN for backups. When you
say 'backup', are you simply synchronising SMB shares, or are you
making a backup file and copying it across the VPN? If the latter,
then SSH or another secure file transfer protocol can do the job
without linking the networks together fully as a VPN does.
