Are you saying that the option to create a recovery point set backup job (full + incremental) is greyed out?

Which volumes are you selecting?

Please answer my earlier question:

What do you mean by that? Please be more specific. Perhaps a screenshot to show the problem will help ...

As mentioned already, a recovery point set job will create a full (first backup), then incrementals.

Which schedule did you assign to the recovery point set? There you can select when to run the full and when to run the incremental backups !

There is option, just run the backup job manually. Full or incremental backups will run according to the schedule of the job.
