Incremental refresh failure

Hi All,
I am using Power BI pro and recently, I tried to configure incremental refresh. My data source is a cloud SQL server database which consists of two years of data containing 6 million records. When I do the initial refresh, it took more than two hours and gave a timeout error. I tried this several times and the result was the same.

Any idea, whether it is possible doing incremental refresh from a blob storage data source? If not, what can be other best practices?
