Windows Server Backup uses VSS and block-level backup technology. After the first full backup is created, Windows Server Backup automatically runs incremental backups..

there is no way to decide to take full/incremental or differential when using the built-in windows backup

Full / Incremental will flush the logs. Differential will not

Just to be clear, so can you do Full/Incremental with Windows Server 2008 R2 native backup or not?

technically you cannot decide you just say "full" and windows will decide which one to run
