I have four subdirs named Week1,Week2,Week3,Week4.

I have a full scheduled task which backs up into Week2 on the 8th of each month
I have a full scheduled task which backs up into Week3 on the 15th of each month
I have a full scheduled task which backs up into Week4 on the 22nd of each month
I have four incremental daily tasks, one for each subdirectory.
On the first day the tasks run, if there is no full backup in a subdir yet, the incremental is automatically created as a full one Each day after than an incremental is created in each subdir, based on the full already in there.
Whenever a full scheduled backup runs, it overwrites the previous full one in that directory and orpans the incrementals. The next time an incremental runs it overwrites the previous first incremental (e.g. back01.tib).
After a month you can go back to any day's data in the last month. I realise that setting up 8 schedules sounds a lot, but it isn' that bad, and hopefully you only need to do it once.
