    Hey there!  I think you'll want to have the Retention option set to at least 2 in order for this to work well - that will get you the following:

    First Sunday - the full backup will run with all the data
    Second Sunday - the first incremental backup run where only changes are backed up.
    Third Sunday - with your retention set to 2, the third time would be an additional incremental backup, but the previous Sunday would be removed.  This would leave you with your original backup with all changes since the original in the most recent backup.

    As the incremental starts to grow, how to do i trigger a new full backup?  delete the backups?

    If you wanted to do that you could, although the incremental backup will help keep things smaller.
