There's nothing to cancel - this just does a one-off backup of your database.

If you don't want the backup file this created, then just delete it.

Sounded pretty technical to me. :)

If you want a scheduled backup, by the way, the simplest way is to set up a new database maintenance plan. When you have made one of these, it will appear in Enterprise Manager under Database Maintenance Plans, from where you can delete it. Just in case you need it in the future.
