- I had installed the beta version of Microsoft online backup
- I had backed up locally to a USB drive that has since failed
- Backups were scheduled locally and to the online backup service.
- When I removed the online beta backup software (Now Azure) and my failed drive, I was no longer able to manage windows backup from the GUI.
This is the error I received in the event log.

I had backups placed on a failed drive, this was causing the backup software to crash when it tried to enumerate them. (Not that the error or events point to that at all!)
I ran the following PowerShell cmtlets and re-setup my backups (Caution this will remove all record of any backup have taken place!!)
- Get-WBPolicy | Remove-WBPolicy
- get-Service *wb* | Start-Service
- Restart Windows Server Backup
Sweet! may backup works again!
Note: I was also able to re-download the Azure Backup agent and that is now working like a charm as well.
