SOLVED: Lest someone else run into this... What they want you to read the manual to figure out your self - thus wasting our times - is this following solution.

When you are ready to set the schedule, you'll see near the top of the screen a bunch of incomprehensible letters. That's the command line. Copy that and go to administrative tools in the control panel and select task scheduler. Paste that where it asks for the task to be run.

Lest everyone else have this problem.

When you create the scheduled task, near the top you'll see a bunch of incomprehensible non-sense. Stuff like $ and date and times. Cope that and go to control panel, administrative tools, scheduler. Find actions and paste the command line into the dialogue box. You can then set the triggers (Tells it what days and what time.) You'll be asked for your username and password but it'll work this time.

You'll have to go back to IFW to create another schedule for changed files. Again, just copy the command line and paste in Windows scheduler.

Here's a good question. Why can we not choose between incremental and differential?

It is a little confusing initially, but the choice is made by usage rather than by an option specification.

The way the terms are used in concept is that differentials are a series of changes only backups each of which contains the changes from the time of the last full backup whereas incrementals are a series of changes only backups each of which is the changes since the time of last one.

The first time you do a changes only backup based on a certain full backup there is no difference in the result whether you plan to use it for differentials or incrementals.

If you want differentials, you just keep making changes only backups based on the same full backup. Each one will contain the changes from the time of full backup to the time the changes only (differential) backup is made.

If your intent is to use incrementals, you make the first changes only backup based on the last full backup then later make another changes only backup based on the first changes only backup. The resulting backup will then contain only the changes from the time of the first changes only backup to the time of the new one. You can make this chain of incrementals as long as you want by always designating the last changes only backup as the base for the next one.
