That's not good! Let's get fixed asap! I want to get your Backup Assistant running properly. Are you still having this issue? Have you tried running the application again? If you are still receiving this error, reset Backup Assistant by going to Settings>Applications>Manage Applications> Select All tab at the top>Sync Service>Clear data/cache. Then go back to Backup Assistant to setup the application again.
