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

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.
