You can see two item: Full Crawl and Incremental Crawl

Full Crawl

To start with we have to use Full Crawl. This will be time consuming and provides the starting point for Incremental Crawls. Full Crawl replaces all existing crawl contents regardless they have changed or not.

Incremental Crawl

These are faster crawls as they crawl only modified crawls. A Full Crawl has to be performed previously to do the Incremental Crawl.

6. Use the Create Schedule link to create a new Crawl Schedule
