If you are asking what I think you are asking, the first backup will be a full backup, the question is will it use the retention level of the incremental or the full. I believe, but have never had to prove it, that the backup will run as an incremental, but will give you the equivalent of a full because it has no base line from which to increment, but it will have the retention level of the incremental.

I'm sure someone on the list will correct me if I'm wrong.

If you were to add a backup for the first time on a day that the policy has an Incremental specified, would it automatically promote to full
