In my case, a permission problem had caused this error. Just locate the folder for the MSSQL$BKUPEXEC . In my case it was located here:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$BKUPEXEC
First, check that the folder MSSQL$BKUPEXEC is inherited permission from its parent. Right-click the MSSQL$BKUPEXEC folder and select Properties then click on the Security tab. Click on the Advanced button.
Verify the Security permissions for the MSSQL$BKUPEXEC folder and its Binn folder are set as follow:
Administrators: Full Control
Authenticated Users: Read & Execute
CREATOR OWNER: Full Control
Server Operators: Modify
SYSTEM: Full Control
