Andrews answer is exactly right. In the destination selection window, create
a new backup set. Set "storage Type" to File (Windows) or Macintosh File
(Mac), name your backup set and click "New". In the next screen, navigate
though until you are saving the file backup set on the external drive.
Backups to this backup set will be incremental, and the file will grow
accordingly as more sessions are added.
