Clarification on Server 2008 R2 backups to network share (incremental? Exchange 2007?)

Have a Windows Server 2008 R2 system with Exchange 2007 SP3 RU2 on it. I am setting up backups and plan on using the scheduled task command below.

I would like to do incrementals but I'm fairly sure this can't be done with a network share.

If that is the case my plan was to create a Monday through Friday folder and create 7 scheduled tasks which would do fulls.

I just wanted to confirm that this is correct or if I can do the scheduled task below and it will do incrementals.
wbadmin start backup -backuptarget:\\location\share -include:d: -allCritical -vssFull -quiet

You cant do incremental to a network share, wsb needs to know the shadow copies that cant be manged via network
Exchange back can't be performed as normal file backup. this should be done with an exchngee aware s/w, fortunatel you can use NT backup for the same purpose.
