I'm using Windows Server Backup on 2008 server. Is it possible to have multiple backup jobs from within that program? I would like to schedule a full backup on Friday and an incremental backup the Monday - Thursday. Is this possible using WSB?

Yes, using the command line/scheduled tasks. Not sure about using the GUI (I don't use it, myself, command line is easier to make sure it is consistent/what you expected).

I wrote a simple batch file that copies the daily backup once a week (Friday in my case), And added it to the task scheduler to run once a week. You can create a different backup (Daily/Weekly/Monthly) to suit your needs. Example of my batch file :

rd f:\weekly_friday
robocopy /e f:\windowsimagebackup f:\weekly_friday\
